Engagement on CCI statement


Review of the NHMRC Statement on consumer and community involvement in health and medical research

Thank you so much for your participation in the AHRA led and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) supported engagement workshops to review the national Statement on consumer and community involvement in health and medical research (consumer statement).

The consumer statement was originally developed in 2006 and last updated in 2016. It aims to support consumer and community involvement across all types and levels of health and medical research.

The community are the funders and beneficiaries of both research and healthcare in Australia and deserves to be front and centre in driving a health system fully informed by research that meets their needs.

With the workshops completed the report is now being compiled and will be provided to the NHMRC to ensure the consumer statement remains a trusted resource providing national leadership and overarching guidance to support consumer and community involvement in health and medical research.

If you were unable to attend an online or in-person workshop you can still have your say by completing the NHMRC
online survey which closes on 16 June 2024.
