This is a one-day training course commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research’s Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre (NIHR CCC), with the intention of introducing both researchers and members of the public to patient and public involvement (PPI) in research.
The aims are to:
- help people to build their understanding of patient and public involvement in research
- enable researchers to start involving patients and public in their research, or to develop their involvement activities if they are already active in this area
- encourage people to learn from each other about what might work in specific contexts
- equip patients and public with an understanding of the opportunities and issues in becoming actively involved in clinical research.
