Workshop for lay people involved in research
The Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is running an introduction to research workshop for lay people who are going to be actively involved in research.
Researchers actively involving patients or the public in their research (not as trial participants but in the design and conduct of research) can send them on this course.
Objectives of the course will be to give lay people an idea of the complexities of the research process, to explain research jargon and explain the timeline of research processes.
It is anticipated patients/lay people attending this course will be given confidence to input and to make sure their input counts when actively involved in research.
The course is free. However researchers are recommended to cover travel expenses for their patients/lay people. The course is not open to the public, only to patients/lay people who have already been enlisted to help on a research project.
When and where?
9am-12pm, Tuesday 28 January 2014
Seminar room one
Institute of Sports Exercise and Health
170 Tottenham Court Road
