Abstract / Description of output

This report shares findings from a Nesta-funded rapid knowledge synthesis conducted by researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Biomedicine, Self & Society. We were asked to review innovative participatory approaches to public engagement that can be used by the Scottish Government to move beyond conventional engagement methods in the area of digital health and care. We conducted scoping conversations with key people inside the Scottish Government, in stakeholder organisations, and experts with experience of advising on or implementing engagement approaches. We also reviewed academic and 'grey' literature on a) participatory approaches to public engagement and b) approaches to public engagement that have been applied in the field of digital health and care.
