Consumer input is valuable in identifying and prioritising research issues. Consumer involvement in planning and managing projects is a key priority for PC4.

Consumers are the most important part of our vision and their contribution is integrated into every aspect of our work. To make sure we achieve this vision PC4 has a Community Network of people interested or affected by cancer. This network helps us develop new cancer in primary care research.

If you are interested in joining our Community Network please fill out this form.

You can participate at many levels based on your interest and availability.


To help guide you about the role of consumers in cancer research, along with some basics of how research is developed we recommend you complete Consumers in Research Training offered by the Cancer Council of Australia. This course is a series of four short modules, over two courses, designed to inform and prepare you to be involved in health and medical research.

There is also a 30-minute short course available online through the Consumer and Community Involvement in Health Research Program.

If you would like to see our CAG and Community Network in action please read this year’s activities report.
