Consumer Advisory Networks
Consumer Advisory Networks are local health consumers and community members who participate in monthly meetings in support of their local multi-purpose health service. These networks are integral to fostering a strong communication pathway regarding service delivery improvements, ongoing operation and development of hospital and health services for rural and remote towns and communities.
These networks foster an environment of partnership within the broader community for rural health facilities and ensure the needs of the broader community (including minority groups) are considered during the development of services.
These networks meet monthly at the local health facility or community meeting area and provide agendas, minutes and correspondence associated with the Consumer Advisory Network to the health facility Director of Nursing.
Members can be any consumers or carers within that community and representatives from the multi-purpose health service or CQ Health. Each participating organisation must have no more than two representatives.
To participate in your local Consumer Advisory Network contact the facility and speak to the Director of Nursing.
