Project: Amplifying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voices
Health Consumers Queensland would like to get a Queensland-wide view on how, when and where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health consumers are engaged with health organisations across the state, such as the Department of Health, Hospital and Health Services, and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.
Health Consumers Queensland has received funding from the Department of Health to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Islander health consumers on COVID-19 related issues; and will be focused on engagement that focuses on the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccinations. Through this project, we would like to gain a better understanding of how consumers are already engaged across different health sectors and to see where collaboration/coordination is already happening.
This short survey will take between 5-10 mins to complete and we appreciate your assistance. Access the survey here.
