About the role
Eastern Health values consumer representatives contribution and a consumer representative on the MEDIC project would be highly appreciated as they would be able to provide insight from the patients’ perspectives on what works for them and in turn this will have a rippled effect on patients, carers and their families.
It is considered really important to ensure that the consumer voice is present and heard during the planning and design of the MEDIC (More Efficient Documentation for Improved Care) project through participation in the working group, to ensure that the information that will be provided to patients is helpful, accurate, relevant and easy to understand. This will be the focus of this project and the consumer representative will assist by contributing with their ideas, suggestions.
They will be side by side with the staff members and work as a team for the delivery of great care, everywhere, every time.
