Involving Consumers in Health and Medical Research: A practical handbook for organisations, researchers, consumers and funders

WAHTN has developed a CCI Handbook as part of an Australian Health Research Alliance national initiative funded by the Medical Research Future Fund, with additional support from their partners. It complements the rich suite of consumer involvement research, frameworks, policies and toolkits that have been developed by governments and organisations Australia-wide and internationally, and addresses a key barrier to embedding CCI: how to start. The Handbook contains the five phases for successful embedding of Consumer involvement: 1. Committment 2. Planning and Preparation 3. Managing for Success 4. Evaluating the involvement 5. Concluding the Involvement as well as clear steps for each phase for each stakeholder (organisation/researcher/consumer/funder) and practical tools/resources to support each step.
