Experts Meeting to Reach a Medical Consensus 

Medical consensus is the public facing disclosure and statements of agreed upon methods and practice by a private panel of relevant experts when lack of scientific methods exist or where evidence is contradictory.

Two consensus methods commonly adopted in medical, nursing, and health services research:

Delphi Technique

  1. Interpretation of problem by individual experts
  2. Experts share individual opinion
  3. 1st round of agreement or disagreement
  4. 2nd round of agreement or disagreement
  5. Enough agreement equals consensus

Nominal Group Technique

  1. 9-12 experts approach of problem
  2. Experts share views with facilitator
  3. Facilitator records and groups views
  4. Individual agreement ranked and combined
  5. Analyzed for degree of consensus in two-three rounds
  6. Pass or fail consensus
