EUnetHTA HTA Adaptation Toolkit
In 2004, the European Commission and Council of Ministers targeted Health Technology Assessment (HTA) as “a political priority”, recognising “an urgent need for establishing a sustainable European network on HTA”.
A Commission call was answered in 2005 by a group of 35 organisations throughout Europe, led by the Danish Centre for HTA (DACEHTA) in Copenhagen which led to the activities of the EUnetHTA Project.
This document is the current version of the toolkit (version 5). It contains the checklists and resources currently available to aid in the adaptation of HTA reports.
This document is the current version of the toolkit (version 5). Version no. 4 was updated in October 2011 through testing after the EUnetHTA project 2006-2008.
