Call for members to Join MASCC’s Newly Established Consumer (Patient Advocate) Engagement Committee

2020    MASCC announces the launch of its newly formed Consumer Engagement Committee, chaired by long standing MASCC member and consumer engagement champion, Anna Boltong, PhD. Reporting to the MASCC Board, the committee was established to build a framework for meaningful consumer engagement that aligns with MASCC’s current and future strategies. The ethos of the committee is to provide a platform through which the lived experience of cancer can be leveraged to inform best practice activity and to optimize benefits to current and future MASCC community members. 

The committee is seeking members who will articulate and enable clear consumer
engagement principles and mechanisms for different levels of consumer involvement in MASCC’s strategy and operations. Priorities for the committee will be to:

  • Develop a Consumer Engagement Model for MASCC that defines and plans for consumer involvement at different levels as relevant to MASSC’s strategic aims. The model will also outline how consumer engagement can be integrated into a specific MASCC study group or other structured initiatives.
  • Establish and publicize a statement regarding MASCC’s Consumer Engagement ethos and approach
  • Develop an 18-month work plan

To be considered for membership, please email Anna Boltong, [email protected], noting your interest in joining the committee and relevance to the member selection criteria contained in the terms of reference.
