Engaging consumers in the research cycle has become best practice worldwide.

What do we offer?

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) promotes consumer engagement in research.

Health Issues Centre offers a full-day workshop that will teach consumers and community members the key definitions in research, types of research and study designs and provide them with practical tips to participate in the research cycle as consumer representatives. Participants will be able to engage with a research team to set up research agendas that are relevant to consumers.

This workshop will cover:

  • Background, definitions and principles of consumer engagement

  • The NHMRC statement on consumer involvement in research

  • The role of consumers in the research cycle; types of research

  • Barriers to consumer engagement

  • How to work effectively as a consumer in a research team

We encourage consumers and board members to seek funding from their health service to cover the cost of this training.
