"How, When, & Why Should the People Speak? Rethinking Public Engagement in an Era of Health Reform"
Adriane Gelpi, PhD, MPH
In recent years, the role of the public—including patients, advocates and families—in shaping health reform has become increasingly important at all levels. Yet questions, both ethical and practical, remain about how best to involve the public. Drawing on international examples, Dr. Gelpi will examine the strengths and weaknesses of three prominent approaches to public engagement and draw lessons for how to improve such participation.
