In reply: The Board of the National Institute of Clinical Studies (NICS) agrees strongly with Hall and Lauder that closing the gap between evidence and practice involves input from consumers. We also agree that the Board of Directors should seek to incorporate input from consumers in its strategic and operational activities.
