Risk Communication and Public Health

Oxford University Press

The first edition of this book reported the authors' work in the Department of Health on developing a series of research-led training seminars for senior health services personnel to improve their processes of risk communication. This chapter reflects on what was learnt from these events, including how to design workshops and develop scenarios. The primary objectives of the chapter are: to outline the underlying philosophy underpinning the understanding of risk communication and how that feeds into the design of training seminars; to use recent experience of running risk communication events to reflect on the changes necessary to the seminars in terms of content, focus, underlying philosophy, and techniques covered; and to identify some more recent developments in the literature on risk perception and communication, considering the implications of these in the context of the training seminar content.
