1. Establishing the unmet need of a condition with the Delphi method
A Delphi study can help the recognition of the needs of certain patients and can define what is currently unaddressed by current innovations or approaches. For example, Triducive has previously designed and delivered Delphi studies with multi-disciplinary experts that have defined a specific patient population (their characteristics and needs). This was used to champion a different approach for treatment guidelines.

2. Defining best practices and encouraging their adoption with the Delphi method
Current care pathways and activities can often be outdated due to changes in technology, best practice or evidence, but bringing about co-ordinated changes can be difficult when pathways are established. By defining new best practice across a care pathway using the galvanising perspectives of experts in the field is probably the most common application for Delphi method that we are involved in and we’ve helped across many therapy areas here. The results are powerful and can also inform policy from national to local.

3. Defining policy or supporting its implementation with the Delphi method
Most health guidelines are developed using a consensus method and the Delphi method is often the approach taken by medical and health policy bodies. We will often work with groups who are looking to inform on what good policy could or should look like and help produce Delphi studies that advocates for new or updated policy changes. These outputs are often designed to seek further advocacy and alignment, creating a powerful stimulus for policymakers across any geographical span (international, national or local).
