Patient Preferences Protocol

This document outlines the current Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) patient preferences protocol. Incorporating patient priorities into clinical practice guidelines (CPG) development is an important dimension of patient-centred care and can enhance the perceived legitimacy and transparency of the guideline development process. The CTFPHC aims to incorporate patient preferences at two critical points in the guideline development process: (1) when outcomes are selected for inclusion in the systematic review protocol and (2) when the final guideline recommendations and knowledge translation (KT) tools are developed.
