Have your say on the review of the 2016 Statement on Consumer and Community Involvement in Health and Medical Research

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Consumers Health Forum of Australia Ltd (CHF) are collaborating to review the 2016 Statement on Consumer and Community Involvement in Health and Medical Research (the Statement).

NHMRC has developed a position paper with advice from CHF and the Consumer Statement Advisory Committee (CSAC) that provides examples of information that could be included in the revised Statement and poses some discussion questions. To access the position paper and further information on the review, please visit the Consultation activities webpage.
The Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) is facilitating in-person and online workshops around Australia during March and April 2024, where attendees will be invited to discuss the questions in the position paper in an open forum. View the workshop schedule and register here: Engagement on CCI Statement - AHRA.

All interested stakeholders are also encouraged to provide responses to the questions in the position paper through NHMRC’s Consultation Hub by Friday 31 May 2024. These contributions will help inform the review of the Statement.
