Our Patient and Public Involvement team are looking for enthusiastic people to give their views on studies, documents, public events and more!
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is the idea that research should be carried out ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public, rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them. These people can be anyone with an interest in research; patients, potential patients, carers and people who use health and social care services, people from organisations that represent people who use services, as well as members of the general public.
The Epidemiology group is now in the process of recruiting people who want to get involved in our research. This could be helping to comment on our documents and questionnaires, helping us to shape public summaries and infographics, or helping us decide what to research in the first place, and contributions can range from working on specific studies, to providing more general input into the work we do.
If this sounds like you (or someone you know), you can find further information and fill out our expression of interest form here.
