Health consumer engagement training
We offer training and education programs for health consumer representatives and health service staff. Our aim is to increase the confidence of consumers and staff to implement health consumer engagement in any setting.
Through collaborative peer-learning, facilitated discussions, workshop activities and networking opportunities, we empower consumers and staff to provide meaningful contributions to health service improvement, delivery, evaluation and innovation
We currently run three different training programs.
