Consumer representatives can take on a range of roles within the organisation. These include;
- Sitting on a committee
- Helping to survey patients and carers about their experience
- Reviewing brochures and other patient information
- Participating in a working group or community forum to provide feedback about a particular issue or project
- Help facilitate staff education
You could do a role that requires a regular commitment or something that is less frequent that you can work around your other commitments.
If you are interested in becoming a consumer representative please contact the Austin Health Consumer Engagement Officer in the Centre for Patient Experience.
Please note, going on the consumer register will not prevent you from volunteering at the ONJ Centre or Austin Health.
