The public at large is the end user of any healthcare intervention thus making it imperative that evidence guiding the use of healthcare interventions is relevant and useful to them. However the public, in general, is an underutilized source of research knowledge even though their practical input can build bridges and reduce barriers as well as influence the speed at which evidence is adopted into practice. A recent review shows patient experience to be positively associated with effectiveness when it is integrated with the research. Studies show that we learn more completely when the materials we use provide an interactive way to solve a problem or provide feedback. There is every possibility that patient reviewers can be influential agents of change for good at The BMJ.
