Session 3: Consumer and Community Involvement in Research

Wednesday 5 April 2023

Do you want to be an influencer of better Consumer and Community Involvement (CCI) in research?

This session will help demystify CCI so you can.

Session overview

CCI in health research is critical to ensure the research is focuses on issue important to patients and is ethical. CCI can range from the identification and prioritisation of topics that are important to patients and the community, through to co-design and the doing of research, or shared dissemination and implementation of findings. However, involving consumers in the design and conduct of research can seem overly complicated and poor directed, which leads to many people involved wondering why they bothered.

Why should you attend?

Clinicians are uniquely placed to facilitate and lead better CCI to influence the conduct of relevant research. For some, supporting or leading CCI can be a great away to engage with a critical part of the research without the commitment of leading all of the research project. But leading CCI does not have to be complicated. By attending this session, you will gain practical insights about the role of, and steps for planning initiating and conducting CCI.

Who should attend?

All staff wanting to be an influencer of better research.
