New online course: Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research

We are delighted to have launched a brand new online course, Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research, delivered via the RETProgram (another platform of the WA Health Translation Network).

This introductory course is designed 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 great introduction to what consumer and community involvement in research is, and what it brings to best practice health and medical research.”

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).”

The course, which takes just 30 minutes to complete, is available free of charge to all who are interested.
