Hobart – To Be Confirmed

The value of consumer input into health research is increasingly being recognised. Consumers and community members play an important role in decisions about health research priorities, policy and practice. Their involvement should become standard practice in health research.

In order to achieve this, it is important that consumers understand the research space and know how to make a valuable contribution to health research. The Menzies Institute and the University Better Health Theme are organising a training workshop for consumers and community members.

We invite you to attend a FREE consumer and community training workshop in Hobart, facilitated by the Head of the Western Australia Consumer and Community Health Research Network, Anne McKenzie.

Workshops topics:

  • How research is funded
  • Types of research
  • Research terminology
  • How to be an effective member of a research team

Target audience: Consumers and community members

Cost: Free

Please note that the workshops will not be able to be recorded or live-streamed.
