The Review aims to review the operation and effectiveness of this amendment. While this is a complex and potentially dry topic to contend with, this act directly impacts West Australians who could be eligible to be included in health research. The Health Consumers’ Council and the Consumer and Community Involvement Program are therefore collaborating undertake a joint survey to provide a response to the Review. We invite you to respond via this survey and your responses will be included in our joint submission.
It’s important that your voice is heard in a space that has so far been driven by researchers and Government.
