CHF's recommendations to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, Faculty of Radiation Oncology on the comprehensive guide for Establishing and sustaining regional, rural and remote radiation therapy centres.
CHF notes that where the guide refers to engagement with consumers, the information should be clear, direct and tangible to avoid confusion or inaction. We recommend including additional information to emphasise the role of the consumer advisory committee with examples to illustrate how this has been done well by organisations such as Primary Health Networks. We have asked that the guide include references to the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s Partnering with Consumers Standard. Read our submission below:
