International Perspectives on Evaluation of PPI in Research Conference 2018
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November, 2018
Lindisfarne Room, Hadrian Building, King’s Road, Newcastle University
This inaugural conference will provide an international platform to critically explore and reflect on the issue of evaluation of patient and public involvement in research. It brings to you a fantastic line up of key note speakers, confirmed from the UK, Canada, USA, Denmark and Ireland so far. Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) – also referred to as ‘Patient and Public Engagement’ and ‘Citizen Engagement’ by international colleagues – is the practice or process of patients, members of the public and researchers working together to prioritise, plan, conduct and disseminate research. PPI is growing in momentum but questions remain about how it should or could be evaluated. Attendance and abstract submission is invited from both the ‘professional’ and PPI communities.

Call for abstracts
The conference is inviting abstracts for oral, poster and workshop presentations. Rather than have pre-set themes for the conference the thematic structure of the in-conference parallel oral sessions and poster presentations will be shaped around the topics covered within submitted abstracts. This will better reflect the current landscape of patient and public involvement (PPI) in research at an international level, and resonate more closely with a range of PPI experience, academic and philosophical interests, and diversity in approaches to the practice and evaluation of PPI in research.
Closing date for submissions is Tuesday 31st July – information on abstract submission
