Event description

Description

Participating in government and parliamentary consultation processes is an important part of influencing policy, so how can we best ensure our messages are heard by the decision makers?

Whether you write submissions on behalf of your organisation, a professional association, or as a community member, this event will provide you with insights into the policy consultation process and tips on how to effectively engage with decision makers. Join us to hear from Janine Freeman MLA, Chair of the Education and Health Standing Committee, Professor Tarun Weeramanthri, WA’s former Chief Health Officer and Noni Walker, Community Partnerships Director at the Australian Council on Smoking and Health, who will provide insights from their unique perspectives.

The speakers will discuss what health professionals can do to ensure their messages are considered in inquiries and consultations, as well as practical tips on writing submissions. A Q&A Panel, facilitated by Dr Melissa Stoneham from the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA, with the three speakers and Julia Stafford from the McCusker Centre for Action on Alcohol and Youth and Brooke Fowles from the Department of Health will follow the presentations.
