Consumer involvement in health research

Joint Research Training

Consumer involvement in health research

We currently run one introductory online course about consumer involvement in health and medical research (open to the public from mid-2024) and one in-depth face-to-face course.

Both courses are suitable for community and consumer representatives as well as researchers.

Participants of the in-depth course should have completed the introductory online course first.

Our joint researcher and health consumer courses foster in-depth understanding and practical skills on the ‘how and why’ of implementing consumer involvement in research.

Who is this course for?

This course was developed in partnership with Sydney Health Partners. This introductory course is designed for consumers, researchers, and clinicians who have little or no experience partnering in health research and want to learn more.

Provides participants with an in-depth understanding and practical skills on the ‘how and why’ of implementing consumer involvement in research. Currently only run on demand for bigger groups from one organisation.

How does it work?

This course provides tailored training to research organisations to create shared conversations and meanings between consumers and researchers. Participants will gain an understanding and practical skills on the ‘how and why’ of implementing consumer involvement in research.

Workshop learning outcomes for participating consumers and researchers are:

  1. Recognition of specific opportunities for consumer involvement across examples of research study types.
  2. Practical solutions to enabling meaningful and sustained consumer involvement.
  3. Awareness of the range of resources/tools available to support collaborative activities and how they could be applied in practice.

Our training comes as a standard package, and our trainers will tailor the content depending on the group’s learning needs.

If you require specific customisation, there will be an additional service fee, which we are happy to discuss with you.

Travel and accommodation expenses will be added to your invoice for training outside of the Greater Sydney area.

Duration of the course: 4 hours.
