The Australian Institute of Health Policy Studies National Citizen Engagement Forum flyer stated 'effective citizen engagement requires the involvement of consumers and other citizens in developing health policy about issues that affect them. Most policy-makers agree this is a new and very important way that governments need to do their business. It was also a key commitment emerging from the Australia 2020 Summit. But what does citizen engagement really mean in practice? And what about citizen's role in citizen making?'

Dr Bronwyn Fredericks was asked to speak for 10 minutes on engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Other speakers on the day included: the Hon Stephen Robertson, MP, Minister for Health (Queensland); Fiona Armstrong, Chair, Australian Health Care Reform Alliance; Prof. Andrew Wilson, Executive Director, Policy, Planning and Resourcing Division, Queensland Health; Jill Lang, Director, Queensland Council of Social Services; Prof. Brian Oldenburg, Chair, International Public Health Unit, Monash University; Prof. Stan Capp, Technical Director, VHA Global and CEO Sharjah Teaching Hospital, UAE; Assoc. Prof. Lyn Carson, Deliberative/ Participatory Democracy, The United States Studies Centre, The University of Sydney; Michelle Howard, Public Advocate, Office of the Public Advocate (QLD); and numerous others.
