Workshop on PPI and improving recruitment

12 April 2013

The NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre is running a workshop with Macmillan Cancer Support on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) and recruitment.

Please note this is an exploration of how involving people can add value to study delivery and not about taking part in a clinical trial.

The workshop, which is open to researchers and lay people, looks at how actively involving patients and the public can help researchers improve recruitment. The aim is to provide an in-depth exploration of the powerful way in which involving people in the design and development of research studies can impact on recruitment to trials and studies.

Time: Monday 20 May 2013, 9.30am - 1pm

Venue: Room 2.18, Chadwick Building, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT

Who is running the event?

Derek Stewart is a patient advocate and activist with over ten years experience of involving people in research. The course is supported by Macmillan Cancer Support and the NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre and is designed as generic and unconditional.
