Fact Sheets

The Fact Sheet series has been developed in response to requests from researchers for short simple ‘tools’ to support the implementation of consumer and community participation in health research.

They are written in plain language so that they can be used by researchers, consumers and community members and are designed so that you can pick and choose which fact sheets are most relevant to you or your project. 

The content of the Fact Sheets is based on information and experience gained from the consumer and community participation program at The University of Western Australia’s School of Population Health and the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research.

The booklet contains all the Fact Sheets to help you consider, plan and implement consumer and community participation for any project.
