NIHR webinar: Embedding PPIE in your research
21 February 2023, 1.00pm – 2.00pm. ONLINE
This webinar will demonstrate how to integrate PPIE into your research and focus on working with underserved groups or topics. The difficulty facing research teams, especially early career researchers, is when and how to use the public and patients.
We know that the communities mostly likely to experience health inequalities and benefit most from research are the underserved and underrepresented. The webinar will explore ways of answering the following questions:
- How would you target a group/community to participate in your research?
- What tools, techniques and partners would you enlist to make sure your target community is able to get involved in your research?
- How would you know if you got it right?

Your local branch of the NIHR RDS (Research Design Service) is based within the BU Clinical Research Unit (BUCRU) should you need help with any grant applications. We advise on all aspects of developing an application and can review application drafts as well as put them to a mock funding panel (run by RDS South West) known as Project Review Committee, which is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to obtain a critical review of a proposed grant application before this is sent to a funding body or if you’re hoping to resubmit the panel can provide some excellent tips and feedback.
