Consumer superheroes for PExS 2018
Do you have a passion for being a consumer representative? Do you have something special to share with other consumers? Do you have a great story to tell about your consumer advocacy work?
We are looking for six special consumers to participate in a network event coinciding with the 2018 Patient Experience Symposium this 9-10 April in Sydney. We ask that you be willing to share your wisdom and experience with other consumers across two networking lunches hosted by Health Consumers NSW and in return, we will give you a registration to attend the 2-day symposium. This is not a speaking event but a semi-structured opportunity to meet, mingle and connect with other consumers to support learning from each other. We will also follow up the event with an online networking forum dedicated to NSW health consumers where you can continue the conversations.
You may be an experienced consumer leader with years of experience changing the health system for the better... You might be using Twitter, blogs or other social media to get your message across and link up with others... Have you been able to advocate for yourself and others and have some lessons and strategies you can share? We want to recognise your achievements and link you up with other consumers eager to learn from you.
We ask that you complete our online application form (below on this page) giving us a summary of what you have to offer in 150 words or less that we can print as part of the network lunch promotion. We will also invite you to be part of the launch of our new social media space for individual members of Health Consumers NSW (a private Facebook Group).
Application deadline: You need to apply by 5pm on Sunday, 25 March 2108!
Who is eligible?
You must be a resident of NSW to apply. We also ask that you be a member of Health Consumers NSW (and if you aren't a member yet it's easy and free to join right here).
We have a small budget to help with the travel costs of one consumer or the part costs of two. Please tell us in your application if you would like to apply for support in this area.
