    Using Deliberative Methods to Engage the Public--Facilitating a Deliberative Session

    This webinar provides practical guidance on facilitating deliberative sessions. Public deliberation brings together members of the public to learn about and discuss a complex societal issue. The purpose is to learn from the participants and ultimately to make policy or program decisions that reflect their views. The facilitator of a deliberative session is responsible for maintaining the flow of the discussion, encouraging opportunities for participation, and assuring a respectful and open environment that allows for the meaningful discussion and exchange of views that take place in a successful deliberative process.

    Community-Based Participatory Research: Lessons for Stakeholder Engagement in Patient-Centered Outcomes Research

    This webinar brought together experts in the fields of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) to discuss ways in which lessons from CBPR can be used to improve stakeholder engagement in PCOR. The goals of CBPR resemble those of PCOR in several respects and both include an emphasis on the participation of individuals outside the traditional scientific paradigm, with the ultimate goal of improving health outcomes. 


    ToxNet Guide

    During an SAB meeting, community members expressed that much of the publicly available, government-sponsored information on air quality is difficult to use and/or understand.  In response to the need for comprehensible information for the public as well as journalists, Dr. Lisa Meloncon created How to Use TOXNET GUIDE that walks an inexperienced user through the vast and complex TOX NET system. This guide is designed for someone with no prior experience of the system and no extensive scientific knowledge. The National Library of Medicine, which is responsible for TOXNET, contacted us to thank us for “developing such a nice product.”
