Hosted by health consumers and carers, Kitchen Table Discussions are an opportunity for community members who don’t normally attend formal consultations to have their say in a safe, friendly and supported environment. Invited by the host, participants will have a particular interest or experience of the consultation topic.
Health Consumers Queensland has utilised this method to support state-wide and diverse consultation with consumers and carers with success.
To date, 42 health consumers and carers have hosted discussions resulting in 387 community members being consulted on three projects for Queensland Health.
