This month the White Coats Foundation are launching a two-part webinar series titled ‘De-Mystifying Consumer and Community Involvement in Research.

The White Coats Foundation looks at “de-mystifying” consumer and community involvement in research via a two-part webinar series that aims to:

  • Provide clarification on what “consumer and community involvement” in research means.
  • Provide insight into the training options available to support consumers with basic skills and knowledge to effectively engage in research.
  • Explore the barriers to consumer engagement.
  • Explore pathways that can facilitate the connection between researchers and consumers. These avenues are underdeveloped and need to be reviewed.
  • Explore feedback mechanisms to consumers on outcomes of involvement and ensure participation is value-adding.

The two sessions will be held on Weds 15 and Weds 22 September.
