Abstract

This article reports on the structured literature survey methodology, which was used to identify how and at what stage users of medical devices are engaged in the medical device technology cycle, including methods and tools for evaluating device outcomes.This was not a conventional systematic review of the literature.The stated purpose of the survey is broader than synthesizing best evidence to inform an area of practice and policy, as undertaken in a conventional systematic review.The survey was systematic in the sense that an explicit search strategy was used with inclusion and exclusion criteria to minimize sampling bias. An established qualitative methodology, framework analysis, was used to organize and synthesize major findings from a broad range of healthcare literature.The search strategy and thematic analysis are presented, to contribute to the literature on review strategies, together with the major findings concerning users and medical devices
