We commissioned SERIO at the University of Plymouth to review the evidence on public engagement in health and social care. Our aim was to pull together and share the work done to date on:
- What works well and less well;
- The impact of effective engagement;
- The dangers and consequences of poor engagement;
- Varying experiences of engagement amongst people from different social groups.
We hope that making the review and its executive summary available will help to generate thought, discussion and further research on these important issues.
