In this seminar, national and international experts from policy, research and practice discuss practical strategies for engaging citizens and communities.

It will be of interest to any organisation involved in, or with an interest in, health and social care services. It will be of particular interest to organisations currently trying to involve the public in their decision making processes.

Keynote presentations will be provided by experts from both health and local government settings. Dr Marion Danis, Head of Ethics and Health Policy at the US Government’s National Institutes of Health, will talk about her work on public engagement in the rationing of healthcare. A second high profile speaker from Citizens UK will present work on empowering citizens and communities to participate in public sector decision making.

As part of the seminar, delegates will have the opportunity to: 

  • Understand how public engagement has been carried out in other countries
  • Hear from those who have led engagement processes in Health and Social Care in England
  • Share and discuss their own challenges and experiences
