16 July 2019, 1.30pm – 4.30pm; Heritage Room, 6th Floor, Hunter Wing, St George’s, University of London, Cranmer Terrace, London SW17 0RE
Involving children and young people in the design and delivery of health and social care research should ensure that research, and resulting services and treatments, better reflects their experiences, needs and priorities. There is also increasing recognition that involving children and young people in research requires different considerations to involving adults.
This interactive half-day masterclass is aimed at researchers who want to learn more about involving children and young people in their research. It will cover:
- Benefits, best practice and theoretical background to children and young people’s involvement in research
- Different models and approaches, including how children and young people can be involved throughout the research cycle
- Practical and ethical considerations, including how to identify children and young people to involve, inclusion and diversity, safeguarding, working with gatekeepers and payment and recognition
- Applying learning to your own research projects and ideas, encouraging dialogue and sharing ideas in a supportive and confidential manner
The masterclass will be delivered by Dr Louca-Mai Brady and Duncan Barron, members of the Centre for Public Engagement with many years’ experience of patient and public involvement in research, including expertise in involving children and young people in health and social care research.
