Citizen juries in Health


Making decisions in health care is complex, arduous and often fraught with political concerns. Citizen engagement in health policy reform has been used effectively internationally since the 1970s, and more recently in Australia, to gain public input to complex policy decisions.

CPD and Sydney University’s Australian Health Policy Institute presented a joint seminar on the use of citizen juries to improve outcomes in health policy decisions on Thursday 18 October at the Eastern Avenue Auditorium, University of Sydney.

Dr Dan Fox, President of the Milbank Fund, and Dr Lyn Carson
of the United States Studies Centre spoke on citizen engagement in health policy reform in the US, Australia and internationally. A panel of policy experts, including CPD Bord Director John Menadue, then joined the speakers to debate the topic and take questions from the audience.

CPD members are invited to join us for this free event.
