SOLVE-CHD first Consumer Review Workshop was held on 22nd March via zoom. A number of researchers who are preparing for the Heart Foundation Research Funding 2022 presented their projects in lay languages to a panel of consumers with lived experience of heart disease and received instant and geniune comments from them.
Rsearchers have found the feedback were extremely helpful. They will respond to the consumer's input in their proposals and were also reminded how such involvement from consumers will be ongoing throughout the life of the project. SOLVE-CHD is aiming to offer more similar workshops to help and give guidiance to more researchers within the Network with consumer involvement in project design and concept from early stages.
Special thanks to our valuable Consumer Advisory Group members: Nicola, Sarah, Darren and Keith for sharing their personal experience and thoughtful comments with us in supporting cardoviscular disease and our community as a whole. We look forward to contiuning our partnership and consumer involvement in the near future!
