How will the Framework help me with consumer involvement in research?

Before moving forward, think about how the Framework will apply to your situation. The Framework is a consistent and well-researched pathway, a means to developing lasting partnerships with consumers. As a researcher, it should help you answer the question: ‘HOW do I engage consumers in our research?’ The Framework can help to get you started on the right track and keep you there.

 Key Framework questions:

Do we have a committed organisation which is ready to work with consumers?

Do we have capable consumers?

Do we have inclusive groups?

What will be the shared focus of our consumer engagement program?
