Patient and public involvement in research: theory and practice

Commissioners of research are increasingly asking for evidence of patient and public involvement (PPI) in research in health and social care.

This course is designed primarily for researchers who either have an upcoming research project which requires PPI and/or researchers who have some experience of PPI in research but simply want to do it better. The day includes sessions exploring some of the key theoretical concepts underpinning PPI, including levels and rationales for PPI as well as an exploration of some key principles of PPI and guidance on reporting and assessing impact. The teaching sessions will also be interspersed with practical exercises aimed at getting participants to apply the knowledge they have gained and think about the practicalities of PPI.

The trainers are Dr Gary Hickey (Patient and Public Involvement Lead), Sally Brearley (Patient and Public Involvement Fellow) and Dr Sarah Markham (service user researcher) from the Centre for Public Engagement. This is a unique opportunity for participants to engage in a course that has been developed in partnership with a service user who has participated in research at all stages from concept formulation to dissemination.
