Should Money Come into It? A Tool for Deciding Whether to Pay Patient- Engagement Participants
In March 2015, The Change Foundation released Should Money Come Into It? A Tool for Deciding Whether to Pay Patient-Engagement Participants.
In Fall 2017, in response to increased uptake and interest in the topic, the Foundation decided to “relaunch” this report, by releasing a newly redesigned Decision Tool and our 7 Things to Think About when Considering Compensation infographic. As patient engagement activities become more common and compensation is a question, these tools can help answer the question: Should patient and family-caregiver participants be paid?
You are free to adopt the tool as is, adapt it for your needs, or use it as a springboard to discussion. In the associated brief, straightforward paper, you will also find pros, cons and expert opinions on the philosophical and practical issues involved. A note about process: We developed the decision tool with input from our own key patient engagement group, the PANORAMA panel.
