BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Patient and public involvement (PPI) is seen as a way of helping to shape health policy and ensure a patient-focused health-care system. While evidence indicates that PPI can improve health-care decision making, it also consumes monetary and non-monetary resources. Given the financial climate, it is important to start thinking about the costs and benefits of PPI and how to evaluate it in economic terms. DESIGN: We conducted a literature review to assess the potential benefits and costs of involvement and the challenges in carrying out an economic evaluation of PPI. RESULTS: The benefits of PPI include effects on the design of new projects or services, on NHS governance, on research design and implementation and on citizenship and equity. Economic evaluation of PPI activities is limited. The lack of an appropriate analytical framework, data recording and understanding of the potential costs and benefits of PPI, especially from participants' perspectives, represent serious constraints on the full evaluation of PPI. CONCLUSIONS: By recognizing the value of PPI, health-care providers and commissioners can embed it more effectively within their organizations. Better knowledge of costs may prompt organizations to effectively plan, execute, evaluate and target resources. This should increase the likelihood of more meaningful activity, avoid tokenism and enhance organizational efficiency and reputation.

Pizzo E, Pezzoli A, Stockbrugger R, et al., 2011, Screenee perception and health-related quality of life in colorectal cancer screening: a review, Value in health, Vol: 14, Pages: 152-159, ISSN: 1098-3015
Screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) has become established to varying degrees in severalWestern countries for the past 30 years. Because of its effectiveness, screening has beenadopted or is planned in a number of other countries. In most countries, the screeningmethod (e.g., fecal occult blood test [FOBT], sigmoidoscopy) is followed by colonoscopy, forverification. In other countries (e.g., United States, Germany), colonoscopy is the preferredfirst-line investigation method. However, because colonoscopy is considered to be invasive,might be poorly tolerated, and can be associated with complications, the idea of adoptingcolonoscopy as the primary screening method suffers. Negative effects of screening methodscan reduce participation in programs and thereby negate the desired effect on individualand societal health. At present, there is no generally accepted method either to assessthe perception and satisfaction of patients screened or the outcome of the screening proceduresin CRC. In this review, we discuss the past development and present availability ofinstruments to measure health-related quality of life (HRQoL), the scarce studies in whichsuch instruments have been used in screening campaigns, and the findings. We suggest thecreation of a specific instrument for the assessment of HRQoL in CRC screening.
