Committee secretariats can often enhance the contribution of a consumer representative on a particular committee by thinking through ways to support his or her involvement. In 2003, the Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) and representatives of committee secretariats developed a checklist for how committees can support consumer representatives as part of a project funded by the Department of Health and Ageing. Although the checklist is not exhaustive, it provides some useful pointers. Small things often make a big difference!
