Project Description

This project will apply and evaluate innovative methods for engaging citizens in public policy debate. The project will use new methods to identify community perspectives about the future directions of the Australian health system. How should prevention and treatment be balanced in the health system?What trade-offs are we, as a society, willing to make to achieve a greater emphasis on prevention? The project will improve the capacity of citizens to contribute to policy development, by developing effective methods of actively engaging citizens in dialogue and by developing methods to transfer this information to the policy context.
