Closing date: 4pm, Friday 13th May 2022

Have you ever experienced any challenges or problems with medicines or supported a friend or family member with this? Health Consumers Queensland is seeking five consumer or carers to host a Kitchen Table Discussion or Yarning Circle on this subject.

About the project

ACTMed is a new service being developed to help consumers, pharmacists and general practitioners (GP), to work together to find medicine related problems and prevent harm. To make sure ACTMed meets the needs of consumers, we would like to hear consumer ideas to design a process so that their GP, pharmacist, and Health Workers, and all the other people involved in their care can help them take medicines safely. It is important that we get consumer ideas and understand their preferences to make sure that this new process works in the best possible way for them and their community. We also want hosts to lead a Kitchen Table Discussion / Yarning Circle about this.

About Kitchen Table Discussions

Kitchen Table Discussions are consultation sessions led by local people for local people. They allow small groups to participate in discussions at a time of day, and in a place, that suits them. The discussions enable health consumers, carers and community members who do not ordinarily participate in healthcare consultation to have their say in a safe, informal, and supportive environment.

Who are we looking for?

We encourage expressions of interest from people who have experienced or supported a person with a complicated medicine schedule or medicine related problem(s). We are looking for five different consumer or carer hosts.
