Approach to developing educational materials

In response to the information received through this research - in particular the knowledge that on receiving good information participants moved from a neutral or negative impression of the TGA to one that recognised the complex work we undertake - five overarching categories of messages have been identified as necessary for future communication and educational materials.

At the broadest level, the TGA needs to:

  1. establish credibility and the boundaries within which it operates
  2. engage audiences to build on their understanding of the regulatory system and encourage them to participate in the system wherever possible

The following table outlines the five message categories, the action the TGA needs to take in response to each of those categories, and the associated key messages.
