How would you come to a consensus with two groups whose goals are very different?
Group 1: The mission of this group is to write medication criteria that suits the best interests of the patient based on the available evidence and a perfect world. The best practice, focus on effectiveness.
Group 2: The mission of this group is to take receommendations from group 1 and operationalize them in the real world. Operational Implementation, focus on efficiency.
1. Have a discussion with both groups present?
2. Have group 1 give their recommendation to group 2 and group 1 make their changes based on group 1?
3. Have a third party be tiebreaker?
The other caveat is that multiple members are part of both groups. Scenario #2 is how it is done, but things keep going in a circle with the same material being presented at different meetings. People who are in both groups make efficiency the priority not effectiveness.
Due to the nature of the medical/pharmacy field we may have to make 4 to 6 of these decisions in a 2 hour meeting that occurs every other week.
Thank you for your input.
