New e-course launched: Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research

Get an introduction to what consumer and community involvement in research is, and what it brings to best practice health and medical research, via our latest online training course.

A collaboration between WAHTN’s RETProgram and CCIProgram, the Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research course is designed as an introductory course for consumers, community members, researchers, administrators, policy makers and organisations involved in health research.

“We’re thrilled to be offering the first e-course on CCI in Australia,” said Deb Langridge, CCIProgram Head. “It’s a free 30-minute course available to everyone who is interested.”

In the first two weeks following its launch, the course was completed by 23 people and received 100% positive feedback, such as:

  • “The information was concise and relevant. The material challenged and extended my thinking around the topic.”
  • “[The best aspect was] understanding the difference between participation, engagement and involvement.”
  • “Simple, easily accessible format. Short and sharp (I can fit it easily in at the end of my work day).”

Following on from this course, participants may choose to deepen their knowledge through live training workshops and other resources offered by the CCIProgram.
