Panel members then voted on each proposal on a Likert scale of 0 to 10, 0 reflecting total differences, 5 no agreements, no disagreements, and 10 total convergences. Compliance levels were grouped with averages and 95% LA. Discussions continued until an average of >7.5 was reached or until the President felt that no other compromise could be reached. Agreement on femoroacetabular peringion terminology (FAI) Agreement level: average 9.8 (95% CI 9.6 to 10). A different approach was taken when discussing the need for research in the future. Hip 2016 delegates, including panel members, were invited to give their views on key research questions that need to be answered to improve the management of fai syndrome. Responses from the EJD and the KB were collected. We used a web priority program (www.1000minds.com) to organize these research questions.

This software presented panel members with pairs of research questions and asked them to choose the larger of the two. Repeated pair comparisons between all panel members resulted in an orderly list of search questions. During the meeting of the agreement, the group used this orderly list of research questions as the basis for open debate and the development of research topics. On 29 June 2016, the panel met at the University of Warwick to formulate the agreement. The meeting was chaired by the AEJ, which did not speak during the discussion. The 2016 Warwick Agreement on Femoroacet Impinging Syndrome (ISP) was convened to create an international, multidisciplinary consensus on the diagnosis and management of patients with ISP syndrome. On June 29, 2016, 22 panel members and 1 patient from 9 countries and 5 different disciplines participated in a one-day consensus meeting. Prior to the meeting, 6 questions were agreed and systematic reviews and pioneering literature were distributed.
