Consensus Development Conference Series

How do you engage citizens, decision-makers, and experts in an appropriate way to address complex health issues? One approach is the Consensus Development Conference. The Consensus Development Conference approach has been used effectively in Alberta by the Institute of Health Economics. The program is modelled on the National Institute of Health (NIH) Consensus Development program in the United States and is an approach used in may other countries. The best way to describe it is - it's a "jury trial" on health policy or scientific issues.
