Want to become a UF Patient Advocate?

Have you experienced a diagnosis of a Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) – either as a patient, carer or family member?

Are you passionate about improving outcomes for people with NETs?

Are you keen to share your experiences and expertise to influence the development of resources and services provided to communities affected by NETs.

The Unicorn Foundation invites you to consider nominating for a position on our Consumer Advisory Group (CAG).

This volunteer group meets bi-monthly via teleconference, with an annual face to face meeting. The CAG functions as a consumer representative voice for people who have been diagnosed with NETs, and their carers. By working together, the CAG provides a mechanism for the consumer voice to be addressed, with the overall goal of providing better services and outcomes for people and communities affected by NETs.

We are seeking expressions of interest for new members for this group, with a mixture of patients and carers. We would like to have all states and territories represented with people from both regional and metropolitan areas, including a mix of gender, age and cultural backgrounds.

People who would like to nominate will be asked to provide a written application, addressing key selection criteria. There will be an interview process (via telephone) and all applicants need to be willing to undergo a police check.

For more information, please see the terms of reference and key selection documents below.

Deadline for expressions of interest is COB Monday 11th June 2018
