Last updated on | Categories:

NIHR are hosting a live one hour webinar about involving patients and the public in research.

 Tuesday 23 February at 11am

This is an introductory webinar for researchers with little or no experience of patient and public involvement (PPI). This webinar is aimed at aspiring NIHR trainees and early career researchers.

This webinar will include:

  • An overview of what PPI is and why it is important in research
  • Why PPI is important to the NIHR and how best to demonstrate PPI in an application – including signposts to NIHR resources around PPI
  • Q&A session

The webinar will be presented by Philippa Yeeles, Director of Involvement and Engagement at the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility alongside Anne-Laure Donskoy, an NIHR Panel Member and independent researcher.

Attendees will be able to send questions in to the speakers who will try to answer as many as possible during the webinar.

NIHR expect the active involvement of members of the public in all the research that they fund. Members of the public will review research proposals and they also sit on some of the NIHR’s funding and commissioning boards and panels to support decision-making.
