Training for Researchers

We offer a range of training workshops for researchers, consumers and community members to promote partnerships that will actively involve consumers and community members in research.

Our workshops have been developed in direct response to queries from researchers, funding bodies, government and non-government organisations.

We have three types of workshops for researchers:

Implementing consumer and community involvement

These one and two day workshops support you to develop understanding, skills and confidence about the how and why of implementing consumer and community involvement in research.

Writing in plain language

This 3 hour workshop helps you to produce a plain language summary of your research project or research findings. Plain language summaries can be used in your ethics applications, on websites and to let the community know about your research.

Laboratory based researchers

This one day training workshop focuses specifically on the needs of laboratory-based researchers wanting to involve consumers and community members in their research.
