Alpine Health has developed a new Consumer Register with the following opportunities:
Health Literacy Consultants
Health Literacy Consultants play an important role in ensuring that our consumer information is easy to find and understand. Health Literacy Consultants work alongside our CHAG members to review or develop consumer fact sheets and information packs that are simple and clear to understand. They may also participate in activities such as wayfinding assessments and website reviews.
Community Consultants help gather feedback from our community about their experiences with our programs or services. One way is to support community clients or aged care residents provide feedback through the Care Opinion platform. Another way is to assist with our community consultations that inform our annual priorities, outlined in our Corporate Plan.
Consumer or Community Members on Committees
Consumers or community members can make a positive contribution to Alpine Health by joining a committee. These consumers or community members sit alongside staff members to review and guide program and service planning, development and implementation. They actively participate in committee meetings by bringing their consumer perspective and experiences to the discussion. This will ensure consumer concerns are recognised and addressed, and that Alpine Health is accountable to the community.
Alpine Health has consumers or community members on the following committees:
- Finance and Audit Committee
- Quality Committee
- Population Health Committee
- Clinical Governance Committee
- Aged Care Committee
- Community Services Committee
- Consumer Experience Committee
- Food Services Committee
- Infection Prevention and Control Committee
