Workshop on PPI in grant proposals

28 February 2012

The Research Design Service is running a workshop for researchers on how to develop Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in a research proposal.

The workshop, which is on Tuesday 20 March at the Wellcome Collection, is for researchers preparing a grant application for applied health and social care research.

The workshop will cover theoretical and practical aspects of involving patients/users in the research process and will provide an understanding of the methods and resources available to involve patients/users in the various stages of the research process.

Researchers will also have a chance to start developing their own plans for PPI in their own research project, with dedicated support from experienced PPI experts.

Attendance at the workshop, which runs from 10am-4pm at the Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, is free of charge.
