Involving health consumers in research
We are working in partnership with Sydney Health Partners to map consumer and community involvement in health research. We want to hear about your involvement in health research as a consumer. We would also like to hear from researchers.
(Survey closes Friday, 11 September)
What will the information be used for?
The information from the survey will be used to inform a series of training seminars to be delivered in late 2020 for consumers, researchers and clinicians across Sydney Health Partners. The aim is to get more health consumers involved in health research.
More information about our Involving health consumer in research project
Building on our previous workshops and reports about health consumer engagement in research we, in partnership with Sydney Health Partners, are undertaking a scoping review that will map health consumer and community involvement in research across Sydney Health Partners (SHP). This mapping will inform a series of training seminars delivered in late 2020.
Sydney Health Partners is made up of the Sydney, Northern Sydney and Western Sydney Local Health Districts; the Sydney Children’s Hospital Network (at Westmead), the University of Sydney and ten affiliated medical research institutes. It is an Australian Government-accredited Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre, which aims to deliver the benefits of research innovation to health consumers and communities.
The scoping review includes this online survey and interviews with key stakeholders.
Building the capacity of researchers, clinicians and health consumers will result in a better understanding of what each group brings to the table. The aim is for all groups to work together to improve the involvement of health consumers in research and the outcomes of health research for the community.
