Consumer Representatives Training
We provide training for people interested in becoming consumer representatives. The training is free and conducted in a relaxed atmosphere. People share their views and experiences of health services in the ACT, and learn about consumer participation and how it benefits the health system. Participants meet experienced consumer representatives and hear about what the role involves first hand.
If you would like more information about the training or to register your interest contact the office on 02 6230 7800.
