Training – Health Consumer Representation and Engagement
DATE: Wednesday 14 July
TIME: 10am to 2pm
ADDRESS: Grand Chancellor, 29 Cameron Street, Launceston
Health Consumers Tasmania invites you to undertake our introductory training session in Health Consumer Representation and Engagement.
The session seeks to introduce both members of the general public and health staff together to the theory behind what makes for good “health consumer engagement” and practical ways to go about it.
We also look specifically at what it means to take on the role of a “health consumer representative” and how they can best participate in government processes.
The session is open to all levels of experience and encourages friendly and open discussion of key topics in a supportive and understanding way, guided by a PowerPoint presentation.
Pre-reading for the session is provided online by coordinators of the Associate Degree in Applied Health and Community Support, University College, University of Tasmania. However please note, the pre-reading is not mandatory if you have difficulty with online training.
A small morning tea is provided upon arrival, as well as lunch mid-session. Please confirm your dietary requirements through the registration link provided above.
Any queries please contact Kate Griggs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
