Pitfalls in Health Policy Reporting

A World Café


Research has shown the media both shape consumer expectations and interpretations of health interventions and influence how people think about their need for care and the sustainability of the system. But is health policy reporting based on sound evidence? Some critics say not enough evidence on health policy is reaching the public’s awareness. If so, and with the imminent expiration of the Canada Health Accord in 2014, it is time to look at pitfalls in health policy reporting with fresh eyes.

Join us for a public conversation with leading experts on how to avoid pitfalls in health policy reporting.

Keynote presentation to be given by Trudy Lieberman, immediate past president of the Association of Health Care Journalists in the U.S.
