This kit is about advocacy. Many of the things we do when we use a health service, or any other service, are advocacy – we just call them other names: standing up for yourself, standing up for another person or a group, and standing alongside a person. It’s also helping someone know what choices they have, and what the impact of those choices may be. And importantly, it’s about enabling a person to have control over their life but taking up issues on their behalf if they want you to. This toolkit is designed to support you, as a health consumer, to receive the best health outcomes possible.
