Abstract

The Delphi technique provides a structured process for collecting and examining group agreement on a topic. It facilitates anonymity and thus reduces the risk of stronger members dominating the group discussion, and it allows geographical spread of the participants as well as low cost and timely return. This article describes the use of Delphi to examine agreement and lack of agreement among an expert panel on what skills a mother needs to learn for hand expression. A Delphi technique can be used for a variety of topics and participants.
