1 May, 2018 - How can I facilitate meaningful conversations with stakeholders?

Time: 10:00:00 - 11:30:00

At the core of Public Engagement (PE) and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is conversation. We believe that research should include public and patient voices, and that this inclusion leads to better outcomes for all. Moving from that belief to actually facilitating conversations can be quite a leap, particularly for those without training or experience. In this session, we will interrogate different ways of facilitating meaningful conversations with public and patient groups, and other key stakeholder groups. We will begin the session with some brief case studies, leading to conversations wherein all attending can discuss and experiment with facilitation techniques. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.

Time: 10:00:00 - 16:00:00

The National Institute for Health Research University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with UCLPartners is running a programme of regular award-winning workshops for clinical academic researchers on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research. The workshops, which are supported by the Wellcome Trust and open to researchers working in UCLPartners partnership organisations, are practical and the aim is to build up researchers’ skills in effectively involving lay people in the research process, from setting research priorities to designing protocols. This workshop is for beginners and experienced (people who are new to and people who have some experience in the active involvement of patients and the public in research).

2 May, 2018 - Collaboration, recognition, and leadership: How to succeed in Team Science

Time: -

Succeeding in Team Science will be chaired by Professor George Davey Smith FMedSci, Director of the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit and Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Bristol. Professor Eleftheria Zeggini, Group Leader at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, will be delivering the keynote speech. Two years ago, the Academy of Medical Sciences published a report on ‘Team Science’; output-focused research involving two or more research groups. The report highlighted the increase in popularity and success of team science as researchers seek to solve global challenges to realise economic and societal benefits, whilst also highlighting some of the challenges faced. Succeeding in Team Science is a responsive career development event designed to enable biomedical and health researchers to seize opportunities to work collaboratively, through workshops, discussion and presentations of the latest team science research.

13 June, 2018 - How can I share the impact of public engagement / involvement on both my research and its broader stakeholders in a meaningful way?

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

What happens when a Public Engagement (PE) or Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) project finishes? Funders and research institutions increasingly expect project leaders to maintain future relationships with public and patient groups. Often funders will expect you to maintain those relationships and, regardless, responsible PE or PPI should plan for what happens at the end. Impact - or the change your work can make - is one way to consider the legacy of your public engagement or patient and public involvement work. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.
