National Round Table Consultation Survey

We would like to know your opinion about priorities in the area of health services and systems that should be tackled by research. The aim is to use these as inputs into a research agenda for research funding bodies at National and European level, to identify key research questions that are tailored to the needs of stakeholders within Europe and in other regions. For this reason, we want to ask which priority challenges need to be solved in your own country, region or organisation, and if possible, which types of research questions you think should be addressed to help solve such (current or future) challenges, especially with an international comparative perspective.

The survey will be open until Friday 29th June

What is this survey about?
To identify challenges and problems in health services and systems that should be researched. Your views will help developing a Strategic Research Agenda that will help national and European funding agencies to prioritise key research questions for future research.

Why is this important?
Countries in Europe are all facing many challenges in how to best organise and finance health and care services to meet the diverse and changing health needs of an ageing population. There is much to gain from collaborative research at European level, to help find solutions and inform decision making on health services and systems.

Who can respond?
Anyone. This is an open survey. We are interested in the views of researchers, decision-makers, patients, carers, health and social care workers, and any interested member of the public.

Will my responses be identifiable?
No. All responses are treated anonymously.

How long will this survey take?
Approximately 15 minutes, depending on your answers. You can pause at anytime and continue later, by using the "continue later" option provided in the upper right corner of the page.

* 2. Which are the key criteria that need to be satisfied to ensure effective and appropriate transfer of innovation between health systems in different countries?

* 3. Which are the most important priorities for health systems research within our country? Why? Which challenges will they help to address?

* 4. What are the research priorities/projects for which we see added value in organising health systems research at European level? Why?
