Consumer and community engagement

In 2020, NHMRC released a suite of resources related to consumer and community involvement in, and expectations of, health and medical research. The toolkit was developed in consultation with members of the Community and Consumer Advisory Group from the 2015 to 2018 and 2018 to 2021 triennia. The Toolkit complements the Statement on Consumer and Community Involvement in Health and Medical Research, by providing further detailed information and tools on five individual areas of interest: Expectations and Value – Framework for Effective Consumer and Community Engagement in Research; Measuring Alignment with Consumer and Community Expectations in Research; Measuring Effectiveness of Consumer and Community Involvement in Research; Considering Impact of Reserach from a Consumer and Comunity Perspective; Self-Assessment of Consumer and Community Involvement in Research. 10 additional links are provided to other resources developed by major agencies e.g. Cancer Australia.
