Abstract: Aim: To describe different measures of involvement in healthcare organisations and to compare existing evaluation tools.
Methods: A systematic review of the literature.
Results: 199 relevant articles were found. These were analysed and 116 possible measures were found to evaluate involvement. 44 were related to measuring outcomes including: impact on the people involved, impact on services provided by the healthcare organisation, impact on the organization itself, influence on the broader public, influence on population health, and engagement cost-effectiveness. The remaining measures assessed the process of involvement.
Conclusions: The authors conclude that there are many measures that could be used to evaluate involvement in healthcare organisations. They have also identified gaps where new measures could be usefully developed.
