What is public engagement?

Public engagement includes any process that genuinely involves a wide range of interests to identify issues, gather feedback, set priorities, and contribute to decisions. It involves a transparent, two-way exchange of information, and seeks to build common understanding and trust-based relationships.

What do you do with the feedback you get through this website?

Most times, the conversations and consultations we feature on this site are part of a larger effort to engage with the public, patients and families, or our partners and stakeholders. We try to provide people with more than one way to give input on any public engagement initiative we are conducting.

All the feedback and comments we receive through this site are collated with feedback from other sources, such as public meetings. Then they are summarized, sorted into categories, and shared with the appropriate decision makers. An important objective of public engagement is to make sure decisions are well informed by public, patient or stakeholder views. As part of our process we report back what we have heard.
