Health inequalities and user involvement?

Jonathan Tritter, Helen Lester

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter examines the theory and practice of user involvement and evaluates its impact on health inequalities in Great Britain. It describes different types of user involvement and highlights the problems in trying to define ‘hard to reach’ groups and the importance of user involvement for such groups. It concludes that user involvement is everyone's business that requires radical shifts in both theory and practice to succeed. It also suggests that creating and promoting greater exchange between those who provide and manage health services and communities and individuals who seek and receive services will create better tailoring of services to demand.
