Patient and public involvement in research: progress and challenges
Tuesday, 20th November 2018, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM; Li Ka Shing Centre, Robinson Way, Cambridge, CB2 0RE
It is undisputed that patient and public involvement in research (PPI) is a good thing. The UK, and particularly the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), has led the world in driving change in order to make PPI a normal part of contemporary research. Real progress has been made, and worthwhile impacts have been documented. But all is not well in the land of researcher-patient partnerships.
Professor Trish Greenhalgh covers three deeply ironic problems that have emerged as unintended consequences of what must still count as progress:
- efficiency and
- legitimising flaws
She will argue that to honour the principle of PPI, we need to ask some hard questions about the unintended consequences of what has been achieved so far.
