Knowledge Translation Curriculum

Module 3: Priority Setting

Lesson 2 - Interpretive Priority Setting Processes

The Ideal, Interpretive PS Process

Stakeholder Analysis

Knowledge Management

Planning the Process

Interpretive Workshops

Revision or Appeal Mechanism

Research Questions

Publicization and Validation

PS Criteria
  • magnitude, relevance, urgency, expected impact
  • answerability
  • applicability, deliverability, affordability, sustainability
  • maximum potential to reduce BOD equitably
  • originality
  • research capacity and feasibility
  • policy relevance
PS Checklist
  • context: which factors underpin the process?
  • approach: comprehensive? appropriate?
  • inclusivity: suffificient representation?
  • information: is it inclusive? accessible?
  • planning: how will priorities be enforced?
  • criteria: how will they be determined?
  • methods: how to decide among priorities?
  • evaluation: of the process and the priorities
  • transparency: disseminating process variables etc



assess contribution of key health actors to control of problem

assess role of all other actors related to the problem

structures, institutions at national, international level that may increase/decrease the burden of disease

review of evidence relevant to interventions targeting problem

Measure the magnitude (e.g. using summary measures like DALY)

Analyse factors responsible for problem’s persistence

Assess present knowledge base to evaluate applicability of solutions

Assess against other possible, available interventions

Calculate present level of research investment on the problem

public health dimensions

institutional dimensions

Public Health

Child Health and Nutrition Research Initiative (CHNRI)

Research Options

experts create list of priority options from health policy and systems research; research on existing interventions; research on new interventions.

Technical experts

define context, definitions, process parameters (by email).

Scoring Options

experts score each option against 5 established criteria of answerability; efficacy and effectiveness; deliverability and affordability; potential for disease burden reduction; equity.


“value” of each priority option balanced by proposed cost; this list disseminated to the public for review, appeal, finalization; experts advocate for option implementation.

Stakeholder consultation

LRG determines weights for criteria, ranking them from 1-5. Weights applied to options into final ranked priority list.

The Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED)

Set the scene

determine focus and scope: PS to address diseases, health system, etc; timeframe; level. Ethical standards defined. Engage partners.

Situation analysis

Choose PS Method

map available data on research governance, management; profile current production, capacity and use of research; assess performance of health research sector; identify PS stakeholders

use PS methods best suited to context. Consider using multiple methods. Adapt methods to context.

Implement priorities


determine strategies to smooth integrated priorities into national agenda; monitor and evaluate; detemine time to review priorities

develop a management framework to specify: methods; expected outputs; responsibilities; timelines, M&E etc.

PS Exercise

implement management framework; monitor process; evaluate outputs and outcomes; publicize; allow appeals; revise.
