VCCC Consumer Engagement Forum 2019

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) will host a Consumer Engagement Forum on 4 December, giving voice to the experience of cancer.

Consumers can play an important role in assisting researchers, clinicians and educators to better understand the lived-experience of cancer. From being involved in research to guiding decision-making, consumer perspectives provide a unique source of knowledge. 

The VCCC Cancer Consumer Advisory Committee is made up of members actively involved as consumer representatives within alliance member organisations. The Committee reports directly to the VCCC Board and is headed by an independent consumer Chair.

This expertise and insight across the VCCC alliance enables us to listen carefully to consumers - and to incorporate those voices into the decisions that have shaped our organisation and informed our strategic approach to advancing cancer research, education and clinical care.

As we improve our collaborative efforts into the future, we have a goal to ensure that consumer and community engagement is integral to our practice, creates opportunities across the alliance and enhances community engagement in the health sector.

This forum will bring together people affected by cancer, as well as those who work with them. The meeting advocates for consumers to be 'part of the process' and will introduce a range of resources to help implement meaningful engagement.
