Should you involve patients and the public in your research? Patient and Public Involvement Session 17th October 2017

Involving patients and the public in all stages of research is becoming increasingly important in order to secure research funding, with many funders even making involvement a condition of funding. More importantly, involving patients and the public in research can make the design stronger, and ensure greater impact from your research.

As part of the Research and Knowledge Exchange Development Framework, RKEO are holding a session on Applying for funding from NIHR – Patient and Public Involvement (PPI). At this session, you’ll hear from a Research Fellow / former PPI Senior Programme Manager at the NIHR about what is meant by PPI, and to understand how this can be applied to your research. You’ll also hear from the RDS South West PPI Lead on the importance of involving the public and patients in research.

If you’d like to understand more about what PPI is, and how it can improve your research then come along to this introductory session.

Date: Tuesday 17th October 2017

Time: 09:30-11:30

Venue: Lansdowne Campus
