Clinician Input and Feedback

Clinician group input is used by CADTH in all phases of the review, including the development of the review protocol, appraisal of evidence, and interpretation of the results. The clinician group input summary and individual submissions are included in the committee briefing materials.

Input from clinicians is submitted to CADTH by groups or associations of health care professionals. Individual clinicians who wish to provide input are encouraged to work with a group that represents their profession to prepare a group submission. CADTH will accept input from individual clinicians only when there is no relevant group or association that could provide input for the drug under review. Individuals who wish to submit input for a drug review should first contact CADTH (at requests@cadth.ca) to confirm the absence of a relevant group or association.

Reimbursement Reviews

Steps for Providing Clinician Input

The call for clinician input regarding a pending application is posted 20 business days in advance of the anticipated filing date. Groups or associations of health care professionals will have a total of 35 business days to prepare and submit their input. CADTH sends out notifications for these open calls every Thursday, through its CADTH Weekly Update. Calls for clinician input are also highlighted on the open calls page of the CADTH website.

To participate:

  • Download the Clinician group input template
  • Complete the template by the deadline given on the Open Calls page.
  • Ensure that all contributing clinicians have completed the conflict of interest declaration in the clinician input template. Input will not be accepted without the conflict of interest section completed for all contributors.

Steps for Providing Feedback on Draft Recommendations

Following CADTH’s review and expert committee deliberations, draft reimbursement recommendations are shared for feedback.
