Patient and Public Involvement in Research

Get involved

The newly formed International PPI Network will be delivering a regular programme of webinars that cover a range of issues related to patient and public involvement and engagement in health and social research in a global context.

Project overview

Learning and Development Opportunity: The International PPI Network have launched a webinar series which will open with an introduction to patient and public involvement in health and social care research. Acknowledging that different countries use different terminology, the presenters will explain how involvement in research differs from participation in research. They will also explore why patient and public involvement is important and how it can improve research. Finally, the presenters will share best practice examples and key tips on how to carry out PPI. The webinars are designed to be of benefit to people who are interested in understanding and developing patient and public involvement in health and social research. It will be especially beneficial to people in countries where PPI is not yet fully developed. Presenters include: Dr Gary Hickey - Senior Public Involvement manager at INVOLVE. Kati Turner - Researcher at the Population Health Research Institute, St George's, University of London.
