Consumer and Community Engagement

Person and Family Centred Care Passion Projects

With the support of the Friends of the Women's and Children's Hospital Inc. (Friends), the Women's and Children's Health Network (WCHN) provides staff, consumers and community members an incentive to think differently about responding to consumer-reported outcome measures.

A Person and Family Centred Care Passion Project, colloquially known as the "Passion Projects", equips services, wards or units to co-design with consumers and the community quality improvements based on consumer feedback.

A total of $20,000 of funding is provided per year, with four projects provided up to $5000 to breathe life and spirit into person and family centred care. A minimum of one project must be targeted at supporting rural or remote health and one project supporting metropolitan health services.

Passion Projects are unique because they allow consumers and the community to be movers and shapers of projects transitioning from consumers as users and choosers of services. They are about partnership, co-design and service improvement. Passion Projects support the WCHN approach of "Nothing about consumers without consumers".
