The purpose of this study was to analyze the discussion of participants from three Kansas town meetings on health care reform.
Yankelovich's process of « coming to public judgment » was used to guide the research.
In this study participants were in the process of the first two stages of public judgment : consciousness-raising and working through.
Health care reform was described in six themes : access, bureaucracy, distribution, expectations, futility, and prevention.
Health care needs and reform were described within the context of personal meaning for those attending the town meetings.
