Perceptions of citizen science in policy and practice

How are public engagement approaches used in policy and practice in preventive health.

This study aims to understand how public engagement approaches, including citizen science, are perceived and used in policy and practice in preventive health.

Participants are required to complete a 15-minute survey about how and why they engage with the public in their work, and perspectives of the benefits, opportunities and challenges of public engagement approaches. 

The researchers are seeking the perspectives of a diverse cross-section of individuals working in areas of policy and practice in health and chronic disease prevention, planning, transport and environment, within government and non-government organisations.
