It is vital for people with lived experience to play an active role in shaping the field of complex care. Amplify, our consumer voices bureau, was created to increase opportunities for organizations across the country to include the voices and perspectives of people with lived experience of complex health and social needs in their work. While most speakers bureaus focus exclusively on providing experts to speak at events, it is important to note that our lived experience experts can play a valuable role in other capacities, such as participating in convenings, conferences, advisory boards, program design, evaluation, consulting, research, policy initiatives, and other project work, as well as speaking. You can find examples of Amplify partnerships here.
We ask that all organizations who connect to consumers through Amplify first download our values statement, which lists principles for authentic and empowering consumer engagement, and commit to actualizing these principles to the greatest extent possible in your work.
