Community Voice at ۺŮ

Introduction

ۺŮ values person-centred approaches to understand what is important to all people accessing O&G care. We hope that by fostering trusting partnerships with patients, families, carers, and communities, we can establish mutual respect and collaboration in decision-making processes and planned care. 

Community member roles are essential to this vision. These roles aim to: 

Deepen the College’s connection to the broader community  

Enrich the College’s understanding of diverse perspectives held within consumer circles 

Provide non-clinical viewpoints on College matters 

Given that community member roles vary by the type of engagement required and the longevity of the role, there are a range of ways in which you can contribute to ۺŮ’s work. Depending on the role, community members may be asked:  

To represent the perspective of the wider community   

To share their own lived experience  

To provide professional non-clinical skills or expertise

This space is inclusive of family, carers, friends, and other support people interested in advocacy for O&G healthcare. The group will be provided opportunity to participate in feedback activities that will help inform ۺŮ work and advocacy. The group may also be consulted on issues such as media, language, and brand testing. Issues raised within the group may be progressed for further discussion in the College.
