Slide Presentation: Deliberative Methods

On December 6, 2011, AHRQ’s Community Forum hosted a Web conference on how to use deliberative methods to elicit the views of patients, consumers, or caregivers – or of other community groups – concerning health policy and healthcare issues. Presenters described the characteristics of deliberative methods, how these methods compare to other public consultation approaches, and the nature of the issues appropriate for deliberative methods.

The Web conference speakers were:

Kristin L. Carman, Managing Director, American Institutes for Research (AIR)
Marge Ginsburg, Director, Center for Healthcare Decisions
Susan Heil, Principal Research Scientist, AIR
Ela Pathak-Sen, Director, Commotion
Jessica Waddell, Researcher, AIR
