As a contribution to iDSI, Meteos undertook a stakeholder consultation through interviews with a wide range of stakeholders. The goals of the consultation were to:
- Solicit feedback from a diverse group of stakeholders on how iDSI can maximise its impact in support of government priority-setting.
- Solicit input on the form and agenda of an ongoing iDSI stakeholder engagement mechanism.
The iDSI Stakeholder Engagement report summarises the outcomes of interviews and concludes with an initial set of options for ongoing stakeholder engagement. The interviews revealed a very high level of interest in and support for iDSI’s efforts to support processes of HTA development and priority-setting. Interviewees also pointed to where there is a need for greater clarity, both in terms of the services iDSI offers and how it plans to engage the wide range of stakeholders interested in these issues.
The findings will inform iDSI’s future governance & accountability, engagement with stakeholders, and the definition of roles among partner organisations.
