The Consumer and Community Health Research Network was established in 2016 with funding from Lotterywest. The network aims to bring together consumers, community members and researchers to make decisions about health research priorities, policy and practice as well as to promote the community “voice” in health research. 

Supported by WAHTN, UWA and Telethon Kids, the below training courses will be run in November to encourage community involvement for both researchers and consumers.
