Public and patient involvement in Canadian drug assessment: practitioner and participant views

Jan 15, 2020, 16:11 PM
Brief Summary :
Lead Investigator Name : Katherine Boothe
Start Date :
End Date :

The public has shifting opinions about the legitimacy of scientific evidence and public participation when it comes to recommendations about what drugs the government should list for public drug coverage. New research by Katherine Boothe finds some important tensions between democratic conceptions of legitimacy that are linked to the inclusiveness of the policy process and which drive public and patient involvement, and moral-scientific conceptions of legitimacy that are linked to objectivity and specific norms of scientific evidence.
