CHDS Seminar with Dr. Alicia Yamin: Meaningful Citizen Participation in Health Priority-Setting
April 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Abstract: A broadly held view within health priority setting research stresses the importance of promoting legitimate decisions, based on both reasonable values and transparent and inclusive decision-making processes. Daniels and Sabin’s influential framework Accountability for Reasonableness (A4R) captures the important elements of procedural fairness. Nonetheless, A4R does not specify the conditions for its own implementation. This talk will explore ongoing research and work on managing both the epistemic reasonableness of decisions and stakeholder inclusion, which have posed challenges to meaningful participation on health priority-setting.
