NICOR: National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research


NICOR patient and public open day

NICOR held its first ever Patient and Public Open Day on the 8th of May 2014. The day was a useful opportunity for Patients and the Public to learn about the role of NICOR but more importantly it was useful for the NICOR team to learn more about what information patients and the public want from the NICOR audits and how best we can present this.

The day was a success and the NICOR team have learned a lot about the information needs of patients and the public and the experience was beneficial for all involved. We are working on producing a summary report from the Patient Day, which we will add to this page in due course. We can already report however, that we have begun setting up a Virtual Patient and Public Panel to be involved in the work of NICOR.  The Virtual Panel will be working on various projects, as and when they arise including (but not limited to) research projects, lay reporting and planning events.
