Welcome to your world: Planning successful PPI
Welcome To Your World will guide you through the initial stages of devising PPI projects which are deliverable, valuable, and enjoyable; the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why of engaging the public, patients, and yourself, in your work.
The workshop is led by Precision AMR PPI Coordinators: playwright and UCL Creative Fellow Nicola Baldwin, and patient engagement advocate Sue Lee, with an introduction by Professor Judith Breuer.
Antibiotic resistant infections are a major global threat to human health which has been accelerated by COVID. The Precision AMR award aims to address the barriers to combating AMR, and accelerate the development of diagnostic, behavioural and interventional tools, and their early implementation into clinical practice.
Patient and public involvement is central to: breaking down barriers between research projects; improving communication; influencing clinical management; changing behaviours; understanding push and pull factors from patients and clinical managers that lead to AMR.
In May 2021 we will stage ‘Rise Of The Resistance’, a two-day festival of performance and public engagement on AMR in partnership with Bloomsbury Theatre. All recipients of seed funding will automatically be allocated a slot at this festival to present your PPI project, and will also be expected to produce a short introductory video and a ‘3 Minute Thesis’.
