Promoting civic engagement, CHCD brings healthcare policy questions to the public — and brings the public’s informed views to policymakers and healthcare leaders.

What Is Public Deliberation?

An in-depth, interactive group process that engages the citizenry in topics where there are no simple or easy answers. Deliberation is an essential – but often missing – piece in healthcare reform today.

Answering Difficult Questions

Should health plans set limits on providers who deliver lower-quality care?
Are doctors obligated to follow “best practices” for their patients?
These – and other questions – are central to healthcare reform.

Want To Engage The Public?

From local issues (prioritizing the county’s public health efforts) to national concerns (how Medicare should be changed to meet the needs of future seniors), there is a role for the public voice.
