A commitment to improving community and consumer engagement in health and medical research
SInce its inception SAHMRI has been, and remains, committed to meaningful Community and Consumer Engagement (CCE) in research. SAHMRI partners with Health Translation SA (HTSA) in its efforts to implement CCE activities across the institute. Together, SAHMRI and HTSA are committed to consistently increasing the culture and practice of quality and meaningful CCE in the research conducted at SAHMRI and advocating for the practice more broadly.
A framework for better engagement
We are using our co-designed framework to engage consumers and community members in planning research priorities, in the projects themselves, and in working out how to make sure our research really does improve the health of individuals and our community.
The framework was informed by a review of literature and current practice around the world.
We need your help to understand how we can undertake and deliver research with the greatest impact.
