Involving People in Research - Workshop for Researchers

Consumer and Community Involvement in Health and Medical Research

Facilitated by Anne McKenzie. The purpose of this interactive workshop is to build researcher’s skills and confidence in implementing consumer and community involvement in research.

Workshop aims

  • Raise awareness of the value and contribution consumers and the community can make to research when involved as active partners
  • Develop understanding and skills on the ‘how and why’ of implementing consumer and community involvement
  • Identify and address barriers to consumer and community involvement
  • Develop plans to start involving consumers and the community as partners in research

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, it is anticipated that participants will:

  • Be able to identify why and how consumers and the community can contribute to their research
  • Have an awareness of consumer and community perspectives and experiences on being actively involved in research
  • Have an awareness of researchers’ perspectives and experiences of working with consumers and the community
  • Have knowledge about organisations that are working towards increasing consumer and community involvement in research activities
  • Start to consider how the theories and examples of good practice covered in the workshop can be utilised in their research
