Consumer Advisory Group
The way medicine is taught and delivered is undergoing profound global change.
Increasingly, the voices of patients and other consumers of healthcare are being heard, both as part of the delivery of care and in the way healthcare professionals are trained and educated. It’s a practice known as patient centred care – placing patients at the heart of everything we do.
Our College is committed to ensuring all types of healthcare consumers are engaged in the way our next generation of specialists are being educated and learning on the job.
Our Consumer Advisory Group plays an active role in improving our professional standards and education approaches, as well as policy and advocacy activities.
Our dedicated consumer group members are advising the RACP forward, advocating for the patient and all consumers of healthcare.
Our outline of the commitment and approach to enabling patient centred care and consumer engagement.
Considered strategies on how to implement patient-centred care have been developed and consumer engagement activities are underway across various College areas.
