Labour of love or thankless work: what kind of work is PPI?

An online conference by the Centre for Public Engagement.

Centre for Public Engagement (CPE) 8th Annual conference in partnership with NIHR ARC South London Patient and Public Involvement Research Theme

The conference will explore the kinds of work carried out  by service users, carers and members of the public during involvement activities, as well as the work conducted by those facilitating or 'brokering' such activities in institutions undertaking health and social care research. The conference will consider:

  • issues of payment and recognition for such work (is this compensation for voluntary activity or payment for work?);

  • the current funder emphasis on co-production, where lay/service user contributors more resemble co-researchers than occasional advisors, impacts on the work and payment associated with involvement;

  • the kinds of facilitation work undertaken by those in PPI co-ordinator or practitioner roles;  

  • how terms like 'emotional' or 'invisible labour' might illuminate some of the challenges of bringing lived experience perspectives to the practice of health and social care research
