The Department of Health and Aged Care has released the Draft National Consumer Engagement Strategy for consultation.

The purpose of this Strategy is to mobilise a person-centred prevention system by involving communities and consumers in preventive health policy design and implementation, and to enable and support a more engaged population with improved health outcomes for all Australians.

We invite you to take part in this briefing, featuring presentations from several of our member organisations on the Strategy, followed by a panel discussion.
