Musculoskeletal Australia is committed to supporting consumer focused research which involves consumers as research partners.
We believe that the experience and knowledge of consumers regarding what it’s like to live with a chronic condition and the overall physical, emotional, psychological and social impact is invaluable to developing research that’s meaningful to those living with these conditions and the health professionals that care for them. We believe that this is how research can produce consumer-centred outcomes, including improved services and evidence-based information.
For those wanting us to post on our social media channels your research will need to have ethics approval from an Australian Human Research Ethics Committee that adheres to the NHMRC guidelines on conducting ethical research.
