Consumer and community involvement resources

Consumer and community involvement resources

Health research and health communities are increasingly recognising the value of involving consumers and community at all stages of the research process.

A common question from researchers is when should I involve consumers and community in my research?

You can involve consumers in:

  • generating research ideas
  • designing your project
  • developing research resources such as information sheets and consent forms
  • conducting research activities
  • interpreting and analysing results and their implications for policy and practice
  • helping to promote the use of research to inform improvement in healthcare and health outcomes, especially research that suggests a change in public awareness or behaviour.

Some resources to help you to involve consumers and community are listed below.
