“…..The expansion of ordinary citizens’ roles in a variety of policy and decision-making processes has created a pressing need to draw out the lessons from accumulated work in the field of public engagement to inform the design and evaluation of new public engagement processes. In particular, the effects of these roles on decision processes and outcomes, and on the citizens themselves, warrant scrutiny.

 

These questions are increasingly relevant to health policy makers and health system managers working in local, provincial and national or pan-Canadian settings to find meaningful and effective ways to involve citizens in their decision-making processes. In this paper, we explore what is known about the extent to which the goals of public participation in policy have been met.

 

The current state of knowledge about the impact of public participation on policy and civic literacy is reviewed along with the conceptual and methodological approaches to evaluation and their associated challenges. The published (English and French) empirical public participation evaluation literature is also reviewed and reflections from key informant interviews with policy makers and public participation practitioners are shared. The limits to evaluation and its uptake are discussed and strategies for advancing the practice and methods of public participation evaluation are outlined..’

[EQ] Violence and Injuries

Progress in preventing injuries in the WHO European Region  

 

WHO EURO - ECEH Rome Office, 2008

 

“….Injuries are a leading cause of death in the European Region, particularly in people under the age of 45 years. Every year about 800,000 people of all ages (235,000 in the European Union) lose their lives from injuries, whether unintentional or intentional. Huge inequalities, both between and within countries, have important implications of social justice and inequity in access to preventive programmes   …”

National assessments

These two-page summaries include a synthesis country profile and an assessment of the country's progress in preventing violence and injuries based on the effectiveness of interventions in place. The pillars of the analysis include national policies, implementation of effective interventions, impact of resolution EUR/RC55/R9 and next steps.

The assessments are based on WHO/Europe's data and information and on responses to a WHO/Europe questionnaire gathering information on key elements of the European Council Recommendation of 31 May 2007 and of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe Resolution EUR/RC55/R9.
