2018 Consumer Forum
Deputy Director, BAIL
Friday 23rd February, 2018
In early 2018 BAIL hosted a very successful consumer forum which was attended by a variety of people connected by the experience of living with disability. The purpose of the forum was to understand what the most important research priorities are for people living with disability, and better understand how to make research more engaging.
Based on this forum, we further developed a survey asking people to rank the topics they feel should be most prioritised by researchers.
From the forum and the subsequent survey, BAIL has determined the following four research priorities:
1. Remaining Healthy
2. Engaging Rehabilitation
3. Maximising Participation
4. Creating an Enabling Society
