Our aim is to support consumers, community members and researchers to work together to increase and enhance consumer and community participation in research.
The Consumer and Community Participation Program is a joint venture between The University of Western Australia's School of Population Health and the Telethon Kids Institute.
Involvingpeopleinresearch.org.au is the website for the Participation Unit. Involving people in research is also known as consumer and community participation in health research.
Examples of consumer and community participation from across the globe
Our Consumer and Community Participation Program here in Western Australia has been featured in the INVOLVE Newsletter Spring 2013 along with examples from the United States, Denmark and the Netherlands.
