Consumer remuneration and reimbursement
Health Consumers NSW strongly recommends that consumers invited to engage with health services or researchers and research institutions should be remunerated for their contribution and reimbursed for expenses. At the very least consumers should not be out of pocket for their involvement.
We have developed two remuneration and reimbursement guidelines, one for health consumers in health services and one for health consumers in research. Health Consumers NSW has developed these guides in collaboration with consumers, researcher and health services staff.
