Consumers in Research training - online workshop September 2020

Cancer Council NSW values the community's perspective on cancer research. All researchers who apply for our funding must involve a member of the community in their research team and all grant applications are reviewed by a panel of trained consumers.

Cancer Council NSW runs free training to equip interested members of the public with the skills to contribute to cancer research as a consumer representative. Participants are given an opportunity to hear from experienced consumers and researchers and at the end of the course, will be more prepared to work with researchers as community advisors. Read more about the training.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, we will be delivering the 2020 workshop online via Zoom to ensure the safety of participants. We look forward to delivering a highly interactive, informative and engaging online training experience, covering the same content as previous face-to-face workshops.

The involvement of consumers in research is widely acknowledged as improving transparency and accountability in research, and providing solutions to practical problems in recruitment, the dissemination of findings, and improving acceptance of findings in the community.
