Governance

Community oversight is an integral aspect of the Participation Program. Consumer and Community Advisory Councils and a policy guide our activities. 

Consumer and Community Advisory Council

The School and the Institute established Consumer and Community Advisory Councils in 2006 to enhance the quality and relevance of research activities.

The Councils meet quarterly and provide a community perspective and advice on organisational issues such as strategic planning, research programs and advocate for consumer and community issues and concerns.

Council membership includes

  • 8 - 10 consumer and/or community members, one of whom will be an Aboriginal person
  • 2 -3 researchers
  • Consumer Advocate and Participation Unit Project Officer
  • Head of School (or nominee)

See the membership of Consumer and Community Advisory Council here

Participation Policy

The Participation Program is underpinned by a Consumer and Community Participation Policy, which was first endorsed by Executive Committees at the School and The Institute in 2005. This Policy meets the National Health and Medical Research Council’s requirements for accreditation of independent research institutes.
