Health technology clinical experts

Clinical experts provide the committee with information on current practices and the setting in which care is provided.

Background

Beginning in November 2016, appointed, non-voting clinical experts may be asked to join the clinical committee in the review of a specific technology. Clinical experts provide committee members with an important perspective regarding the technologies, procedures or tests being reviewed. Qualified clinicians are encouraged to apply to serve as the clinical expert for the topics listed below.

Opportunities for experts

None at this time. Please check back in September.

The clinical expert role

During meetings, clinical experts support the work of the committee by responding to technical questions posed by the chair. An expert does not act as an advocate or opponent for the subject under review, nor is the expert asked to express an opinion on the evidence.

Compensation is paid at a rate of $150/ hour for time spent at the meeting (generally four hours), plus one hour of preparation time.
