Consumer Advisory Panel


The AGITG Consumer Advisory Panel was established in 2008 as a volunteer group to provide advice to the AGITG on general research directions and priorities from a consumer perspective and to identify unmet needs in the community.

Key activities include the review of new trial concepts, identifying gaps in research, assisting with the ease of understanding of trial patient information and consent forms and advising on patient recruitment strategies.

The diligent work of the Consumer Advisory Panel is instrumental in providing a voice for survivors, patients, carers and families impacted by GI cancer.   This unique relationship between consumers and medical professionals contributes significantly to the improvement of treatments for people with GI cancer.

The Consumer Advisory Panel also supports the GI Cancer Institute with its initiatives such as the Engage Community Forum Program and the Gutsy Challenge.
