Project Description: A systematic review of stakeholder-engaged research

The objective of this project is to review the past 10 years of published clinical, health services and health policy research that has included stakeholder engagement in its methods. The purpose is to identify what is known, what is not known, and what further investigation is needed to guide future methods in stakeholder engagement. We will be using the 7Ps of Stakeholder Engagement and Six Stages Model of comparative effectiveness research (see Concannon, JGIM 2012) as a roadmap to guide our work.
