The Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis (ACEMID) Consumer and Community Engagement Working Group works to ensure the patient voice is considered in all aspects of the research and its implementation. The group has developed a consumer framework to actively drive and be involved in all aspects of the ACEMID team’s research and translational agenda and to be active partners along the way to achieve our shared vision of reducing melanoma and skin cancer burden.

The group incudes representatives from the Cancer Council Queensland, Melanoma Patients Australia (MPA), the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Advocacy Network (MSCAN), Melanoma Institute Australia, study participants and researchers.
