Involving patients and the public in research: getting started and tips for good practice

16 October 2019 9.30am - 1.30pm

Who is the workshop aimed at?

The workshop is aimed at researchers and research support staff in the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and Clinical Trials Evaluation Unit who are interested in finding out about ways to involve patients and the public in their research and hearing about good practice from fellow researchers.

What will I learn?

Participants will learn more about what patient and public involvement (PPI) means, some of the different ways to involve patients and the public, and how to capture this. Specifically, the workshop aims to:

  • introduce research staff to PPI
  • encourage staff to plan early and get started with PPI activities
  • share what has been learned from past projects about good practice in PPI
  • help staff to start thinking about how to evaluate PPI activities
  • identify further resources to support PPI

What will the workshop involve?

The workshop will be delivered jointly by the People in Health West of England PPI team and some of the researchers in the BRC who have involved the public in their work. It will be practical and interactive and participants will be encouraged to reflect on the possibilities for PPI in research and contribute to discussion to help identify and plan appropriate PPI activities in their own projects.

Lunch is not provided but refreshments will be available.
