Promoting and developing service user and carer involvement in research and education

Increasingly, policy makers, regulatory and funding bodies require the involvement of patients and the public in the design and delivery of education and research. But how do we support this involvement?

In this presentation we will explore the work of the PEER Group (Peer Expertise in Education and Research). The group was set up in early 2010 and plays a key role in developing and supporting service user and carer active involvement in research and education at St George's, University of London. It is made up of local mental health service users and carers who are interested in contributing to research and education and working with researchers from St George's and South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust on research and educational projects.

The group, which is coordinated by two service user researchers, also promotes good practice and ethical ways of working. The presentation will cover the purpose and aims of the PEER Group, how we work and support people in practice and draw on examples from the research and education in which we have been involved.

This event is free of charge and open to all. Refreshments will be served from 4.30pm.

 

Booking is essential to attend this event.
