INSPIRE Publication

In this 21st issue of INSPIRE we asked Research Australia members to share real-life examples of how consulting with the consumer has resulted in better research. It seems that our members are well along this path, and the response to our call-out for articles has been so strong that we will be continuing this theme in the next issue. The myriad benefits include greater accountability, improved quality and outcomes, decreased costs, more effective research translation and improved public confidence in research.

Our special thanks to the organisations that contributed articles to this issue: Australian National University, Australian Red Cross Lifeblood, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Institute, CSL, Edith Cowan University, The Kids Cancer Project, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Rare Voices Australia, Telethon Kids Institute, University of Melbourne, University of Queensland, University of Sydney, University of Western Australia and the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute.
