PPI workshop booking up fast

24 December 2012

The January Joint Research Office (JRO) workshop on setting up a patient group for PPI (patient and public involvement) is booking fast.

Researchers wanting to attend the workshop on 16 January 2013 are urged to reserve a place as soon as possible.

The free half-day workshop 'Setting up and running a patient group for PPI in biomedical research' aims to be practical and realistic in its approach. Researchers are encouraged to work through their own plans for PPI.

Topics covered include:

  • Pros and cons of different types of groups
  • How to enlist people to a group and keep them interested
  • Setting the terms of reference of a group
  • One researcher's experience of setting up a patient group.

The workshop will be led by Bec Hanley of TwoCan Associates and Derek Stewart of Rime and Reason.

NB This workshop only looks at the active involvement of patients in the research process. It does not look at how to recruit patients and volunteers to trials.

When: Wednesday, 16 January 2013, 9.30am-1.00pm

Where: Boardroom, Maple House Suite A, 149 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 7DN
