STARDIT/Involve Australia Prospective Report 2021-2023

From Wikispore
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Description: Involve Australia will investigate the current public and health consumer involvement landscape in Australian healthcare research and use resources that currently exist to develop guidelines specifically for genomic research. Unlike pre-existing guidelines, Involve Australia will build its guidelines from the health consumer perspective. Ensuring patient and carer needs are built into genomic researchers’ consumer involvement strategies before projects begin provides a standard other fields of healthcare research should also meet. Ultimately, this will improve consumer health outcomes and their journey towards better health.
