CUH Patient and Public Involvement panel members meeting

What can Patient and Public Involvement contributors in health research actually do?

Tue 12 September


A 60-minute information session for members of the public based in the UK.

The NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a partnership between the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) to support health research that makes a difference to the lives of patients.

Patients and members of the public can play an important role supporting quality health research by providing their voice throughout a research project. Hearing from people outside of the research community makes sure that the needs of patients are kept front and centre.

There are many opportunities for both people with lived experience of health conditions and people providing a “general public" perspective to get involved.
Join this information session to find out about some of the different roles that patients and members of the public can hold in research.

We will cover:
- Acting as a lay reviewer for Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) panels - a flexible
“offline” opportunity covering multiple projects.
- Attending discussion groups and workshops - sharing your opinions with researchers and
other members of the public in virtual or in-person meetings.
- Sitting on a steering, oversight or data access committee - helping to guide high level
strategic decisions over the course of a project.
- Being a co-applicant - joining a research team to help design and deliver a research

We will hear from public contributors on their experiences in these different roles and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.

If you are passionate about health and social care research and think you would be interested in acting as a patient/public contributor, this session will let you know what to expect.
