Public views about Australia's health system

Public views about Australia's health system


Principal investigator


This collaborative project was developed by the Australian Institute of Health Policy Studies and will provide a comparison of three examples of deliberative methods being implemented across the ACT, SA and Queensland.

The citizen engagement project aims to apply and evaluate innovative deliberative methods for their effectiveness as a tool in health policy development and as a means for collecting information on citizen's views on health policy issues.

The project will generate information about community values, priorities and preferences, in particular, relating to chronic disease management and preventive health policy.
