Expression of Interest – Hospital in the Home Consumer Communication Review

Closing date: Close of business Thursday, 9 May 2019 

Healthcare Improvement Unit

Clinical Excellence Queensland is recruiting four consumers to participate in a communication review exercise. This will be a one-off appointment which can be completed via email and in your home.

Clinical Excellence Queensland (CEQ), in recent months, has been collaborating with Queensland Hospital in the Home (HITH) Services to enhance and optimise HITH service delivery in Queensland. Improved promotion of HITH, among other items, has been identified as a key enabler for HITH. To address this, CEQ has developed content for a public-facing internet site, and have also developed a suite of multi-modal resources for both patients and clinicians.

Purpose

The aim of the review is to have consumer input into the development of proposed internet content regarding Hospital in the Home (HITH), and in addition, some patient resources which have been developed.

Role of the Consumer

The Healthcare Improvement Unit would like four consumers to provide input into the draft content for the HITH public facing website, as well as the developed patient resources.

Who is this for?

The successful consumers will ideally represent a variety of consumers from different backgrounds and locations.

The opportunity would suit a consumer who has accessed or attempted to access Hospital in the Home Services, or a carer who also has accessed or attempted to access HITH services.

This would also suit someone who has a keen interest and support for patients being able to access hospital and health services in their home.

Time and location

This opportunity can be completed at home in your time over a two hour period. You can decide if you would like to complete the activity in one go or over time, however the time allocated to review the content will be 2 hours.

The draft website content and promotion materials will be provided to you shortly after the application period has closed. Feedback on the website content and communication suite will be required within one week.

Remuneration and support

The four successful consumers will be remunerated $80 for their 2 hour period.
