Panel: Results of the Community Forum Demonstration

Results of the Community Forum Demonstration: Public Deliberation on the Use of Evidence in Societal and Personal Health Care Decisions

AIR-sponsored panel at the 2015 Academy Health Annual Research Meeting (Conference registration is required)

Public deliberation is a unique way of convening a diverse group of citizens to consider an ethical or values-based dilemma and then weigh alternative—often competing—views. Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the AIR study is the first large-scale randomized controlled trial of alternative methods of public deliberation exploring the views about the role of medical evidence in treatment decisions.
