Consumer Involvement in Research for Ethics Committee Members

Course Outline: Consumers and community involvement in research (CCI) is a growing international movement and is increasingly required by funders. The government also recognises the value of CCI and has extended the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare 'Partnering with Consumers Standard' to clinical trials. Evidence suggests that CCI makes research more ethical by ensuring it is aligned to the needs of patients and conducted in a way that is sensitive to their needs.
