Consumer involvement

'Consumers' are people who have a lived experience of a health issue. They might receive healthcare or advice or use healthcare services. They can be patients, their friends, their families, their carers, and members of the general public.

By sharing your lived experience with researchers, you help to ensure that research and guidelines are appropriate and consistent with values and preferences. you do not need any research experience or have a science background to participate; support is provided by relevant research or guideline groups.
