Consumer Scholarship Program

The AIDH Consumer Partner Scholarship Program enables consumers, patients and advocates who would not otherwise be financially supported to attend our conferences.
Funded by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health, the scholarships allow consumer and patient partners to take advantage of unique opportunities to advance understanding of the value of consumer engagement in digital health and health informatics, and the work of the healthcare sector.

Why is it important?

AIDH believes that patient involvement brings patients closer to the conversations driving the future of healthcare.

Meaningful inclusion can drive discussion and knowledge dissemination and widen research agendas to include patient-centred perspectives.

Involving patients can help delegates understand problems that matter most to patients and carers, and trigger collaborations in healthcare design, research, education and clinical care improvements. Recipients take learnings back to their organisations to boost understanding and collaborations that improve patient care.

More information on Consumer Scholarships and inclusions will be made available in April 2024.
