Royal Perth Bentley Group Consumer Advisory Committee and Consumer and Carer Representative Pool

The Royal Perth Bentley Group (RPBG) Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) establishes a formal partnership between consumers, carers, community representatives and RPBG so we can better understand the consumer experience.

 

In addition to the RPBG CAC, a Consumer and Carer Pool (Pool) has been established to widen the opportunities for RPBG to engage.

Members of the CAC and the Pool are asked their opinions and advice about our services, policies, publications and projects. They provide support and guidance on relevant issues to improve the hospital experience for patients, consumers, their families and their carers.

The CAC meets monthly and the Pool are contacted as an when needed. They are both supported by the Consumer Engagement Team.

Co-design means to share the power in decision making, design, delivery and evaluation and listening to and hearing the voice of the consumer/carer.

If you have a project starting or would like input from a consumer/carer for any other reason, please consider:

  • that consumers may share their own experience and contribute a broader perspective
  • in what capacity would you like a consumer/carer representative to be involved e.g. committee, working group, ad-hoc workshop or general feedback on policy, publications etc.
  • how many participants would you need for useful feedback as we can set up workshops with a few consumers/carer to provide active participation.

Consumer Engagement Register

The Consumer Engagement Register is a register of consumers who wish to be involved in consumer focused activities but not necessarily attend the CAC meetings.

These activities may include:

  • reviewing consumer publications via email from home
  • attending meetings, working groups, focus groups, project or change management groups
  • surveying patients and other consumers.

Contact the Royal Perth Bentley Group Consumer Engagement Unit on 9224 1637 or email RPBG.CEU@health.wa.gov.au for more information on how you can get involved.

RPH strongly encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people from culturally diverse backgrounds, carers and people with disabilities.
