Using deliberative democracy in healthcare

In our work with the Stroke Association we used deliberative democracy principles to develop strategy and improve the culture.

What is deliberative democracy, and why did it work so well for the Stroke Association? It’s particularly good at dealing with large, broad issues where there isn’t a ‘right’ answer – but it won’t work for everyone and is tricky to do.

Our report outlines how it worked for the Stroke Association, and our webinar discusses how deliberative democracy can be used in healthcare.
