At The Advocacy Project, we invite renowned national experts to give talks on topical issues. The lectures are open to our staff, service users and partners – plus anyone who’s interested and would like to join us. The session includes time for questions and discussion.

Deliberative democracy and its application in health and social care with Ela Pathak-Sen

We are lucky that we live in a country with publically funded health and social care services free at the point of delivery. We certainly talk the talk about engagement and involvement of those who use services, pay for services but how effective are the methods we use? When it comes to big, tricky decisions about our lives, how do we get to the heart of what our public value most? Ela will speak about how using a ‘deliberative’ approach can help with better decision making and she would like to know what you think!

Ela, Associate Director for Quality & Service Improvement at Central North West London NHS Trust, is an expert in public deliberation and improvement in quality of healthcare services. Ela is passionate about health and the positive impact that everyone can have on the future of healthcare. She has helped change happen in health services across the world, from the NHS in the UK with NICE, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, to health services in America with AIR, the American Institute for Research. Ela's says it is not just about getting people involved. Standards have to be higher and a large part of what Ela does involves using clinical evidence to help get better outcomes for patients.
