International workshop on public involvement in making difficult prioritisation decisions in health care

In November 2015 Professor Peter Littlejohns and Dr Katharina Kieslich convened an international workshop entitled “Improving equitable access to health care through increasing public and patient involvement in prioritisation decisions” at the Brocher Foundation in Geneva, Switzerland. The workshop brought together academics and practitioners from 14 countries to discuss the successes and challenges of public and patient involvement in health priority setting.

The results of the workshop have been published in a series of articles in a special issue of the Journal of Health Organization and Management, which was guest edited by Katharina Kieslich, Peter Littlejohns and Albert Weale (University College London).

The material that was presented by the participants of the workshop in a series of country case studies can be found here:

We thank the Brocher Foundation for hosting and funding the workshop. We are grateful to the Journal of Health Organization and Management for publishing our findings in a special issue. A new research programme is now being developed.
