Research Skills Seminar Series : Consumer and Community Participation - 2nd December 2016
Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research: Getting Started!
All researchers should consider involving consumers or community members in their research and understand how and why to go about this.
This seminar provides an introduction to the foundations of consumer and community involvement and will look at: what is it; why it’s important; what are the benefits; what are the barriers; and what you need to have in place to get started.
