The end of the year is upon us. Where did 2018 go? It's been busy year and I won't deny it, I am looking forward to a bit of a rest to recharge the batteries for 2019 over the next couple of weeks.

I've w
ritten on our website, for those interested, a recap of what we have achieved this year and our plans for early next year.
If you've missed any of our consumer/researcher stories, newsletters, etc, you can always catch up via our Latest News. (And I hope to release a video reflection on the year before the New Years champagne is popped, so keep an eye out on our social media for that).

I am so grateful for the support, advice and contributions so many of you have made this year to our initiatives, and other opportunitiues our network have offered and I look forward to what we can achieve together in 2019.

So with that, all that remains is to wish you and those you care about a restful, safe, happy holiday season, and an exciting, healthy 2019.


Till we meet again in 2019, best wishes... Janelle.
In case you missed our Latest News.....  

Since the last newsletter, we published interviews with a researcher and consumer representative involved in the ENDIA study, talking about the issue of engaging the public in research, the ways the ENDIA team have involved consumers in the largest study into understanding the cause of Type 1 diabetes in Australia, and the value of that involvement. You can catch up on Part 1 and Part 2 of the interviews online.

We also sponsored the Australian Clinical Trial Alliance (ACTA) annual summit, presented at it on ACTA's Consumer Engagement Group work and supported the attendance of a couple of consumers to it. To our mind, all the consumers that attended demonstrated in spades the value of including their perspectives in the discussion around challenges and ways forward in clinical research with their insightful questions and comments throughout the event. Presentations from the summit are available at the link provided, for those interested.

And, in case you've missed it, we offer researchers the opportunity to advertise for free any research they are looking for participants for, or patient/carer/consumer input into every Tuesday night, 5-10pm AEDT in our Facebook Group as part of out #TrialsTues initiative. Visit the website or contact us if you would like more information.
