How Researchers can Benefit from Consumer Engagement

Consumer Engagement for Cancer Researchers 

An increasing requirement of cancer research funders – including Cancer Australia and NHMRC – is the involvement of consumers in various phases of the research process. By engaging consumers in research, it is possible to draw on their critical insights and real life experience to improve research design and implementation, and the communication of outcomes, to ensure that these translate most effectively to improvements in clinical services and treatment outcomes.
