Description

Health resources are becoming increasingly constrained. So it is essential that professionals, and the public, recognise the need to work together in establishing local priorities and collaborate in their implementation. Priority Setting and The Public challenges many widely accepted beliefs and perceptions. It links together academic literature, critical overviews of methods and approaches with practical applications and original research. It shows the different approaches to engaging the public, challenges and how progress can be achieved. A wide number of methods, from a range of disciplines are described, reviewed and guidance is given on factors to consider for selection. This book is essential reading for all health service and primary care organisations, especially those responsible for resource allocation, clinical governance and public health.
