A diverse group of young health consumers came together on the 23 June 2022 to lead a discussion on what “Reimagining healthcare for young people” looks like, what matters to young people and what barriers need to be removed to get there.
If you are a young person or from a health service or health organisations and want to hear and learn from young leaders in health creating change in health care, young people’s experiences of healthcare or would like tips on innovative ideas to engage with young people.. watch the recording and read about the panelists here.
The Queensland Child and Youth Clinical Network (QCYCN) in partnership with Health Consumers Queensland (HCQ) hosted the “Reimagining health care for young people” online webinar on Thursday 23 June 2022 with over 100 people attended.
HCQ’s Youth Reference Group (YRG) have set a new bar for engagement after their presentation to Queensland Health’s Senior Leadership Forum (SLF) which is chaired by Dr John Wakefield, Director General, received broad support from Chief Executives and Deputy Director-Generals right across the system.
Anja, one of the YRG members explains: “Breanna, Lachlan and I had the honour of presenting to the Queensland Health Senior Leadership Forum on 13th July to encourage investment and commitment into amplifying the youth voice across Queensland. We presented the work of the Youth Reference Group (YRG) which has worked collaboratively to develop the Youth Engagement Framework. (more…)
The Youth Health Forum discussed the actions required to put the framework into action and pathways to creating a broader network for young health consumers in Queensland. Two key activities included further feedback on the draft actions and the exploration of networks using art.
It was wonderful to (finally) hold our long awaited and eagerly anticipated Youth Health Forum face to face in Brisbane last Friday and actually meet many of the dedicated and inspirational young people on our Youth Reference Group in person.
