Public & Patient Engagement: The Big Picture
How does public engagement work? Why is it crucial in healthcare? What role are you about to play?
Professor Julia Abelson of McMaster University takes on the big questions in her presentation to the PANORAMA panelists at their orientation. She also looks at particulars – different publics, different roles, different ranges of engagement – and shows examples of patient engagement groups across Canada and beyond. Her talk looks at engagement methods such as advisory groups and representation on clinical teams. It shows how public and patient engagement can lead to better decision-making processes and better decisions. Key information for anyone who wants a voice in the healthcare discussion.
