Submit Your Project

Submit your project to present at the 2019 Annual Forum!

Health Consumers Queensland extends a warm invitation to all health consumers and carers, and staff from Queensland Health, Primary Health Networks, private hospitals, health leaders, research institutes and health related consumer and community organisations from across Queensland.

You are invited to connect, share learnings and showcase your projects or programs at our 2019 Annual Forum where we will explore the theme:


CONNECT · INNOVATE · TRANSFORM

Enabling excellence in consumer engagement


Our 2019 Annual Forum will give you the opportunity to pass on your experience of enabling excellence in consumer engagement.
In order for consumer partnerships to TRANSFORM the health system, health organisations must create the conditions for consumers, carers and staff to CONNECT meaningfully. There are benefits in all parties developing relationships based on listening, respect, walking in each other’s shoes and building trust. This enables health staff and consumers/carers to truly INNOVATE across the stages of engagement (planning, design, delivery and evaluation).

We encourage applications to present from projects which can demonstrate transformation in health through innovative partnerships with consumers.
