Consensus or Nonsensus Conferences on Coronary Heart Disease
Lancet. 1985 May 11; 1(8437): 1087-1089.
Oliver criticizes the use of consensus development conferences to provide health policy recommendations and cites as examples two such recent conferences, one on coronary artery bypass surgery in Great Britain, and the other on the link between blood cholesterol and heart disease in the U.S. He identifies sources of bias in the conference conclusions and suggests alternative policy-formulating approaches that provide for the involvement of a broad range of experts, in-depth review of the subject, and sufficient time. He recommends that ad hoc national or international panels be convened to examine policy issues, or that standing advisory commissions be appointed to respond to topical questions. (KIE abstract)
