Queensland Digital Health Centre
The Queensland Digital Health Centre (QDHeC) is inviting eight (8) health consumer and carer representatives to join a new Consumer Advisory Committee. The QDHeC Consumer Advisory Committee aims to understand consumer and carer’s experiences accessing healthcare and how digital health innovations can change our healthcare system to improve health outcomes.
The purpose of the Consumer Advisory Committee is to provide advice and guidance to QDHeC and assist in design and delivery of research projects, programs and activities.
The role of the consumers will be to:
• Attend Consumer Advisory Committee meetings at least twice a year for a two (2) year term.
• Actively participate in all Consumer Advisory Committee meetings including pre-meeting reading, discussion and the provision of feedback and advice.
• Participate in focus groups/working groups/committees outside of Consumer Advisory Committee meetings.
• Provide advice from a consumer or community perspective.
• Adhere to the Terms of Reference and maintain privacy and confidentiality of all sensitive information that is shared with the group.
Who is it for?
This opportunity would suit consumers or carer representatives that have:
• A lived experience of being a health consumer or carer.
• It is desirable but not essential that the consumer or carer representatives have previous consumer representative experience within the health sector.
• It is desirable but not essential that consumer or carer representatives have an interest in, or have been exposed to, digital health.
• If you have no prior experience with digital health, we are seeking people who have a willingness to learn how digital health innovations are changing our health system.
• QDHeC encourages First Nations consumers and carers, culturally and linguistically diverse communities and consumers and carers residing in rural and remote areas of Queensland to apply.
