Event Details


Educating for Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement 3:

Making the economic case

Following two successful national events in 2011 and 2012, we are delighted to announce the third national conversation on EPPI/E and we would welcome you to join us.

This year’s exciting event will build on the achievements of the past two years when we have come together to debate and explore the complex field of patient and public involvement and engagement from educational perspectives. In October this year we will meet together to continue our conversations on teaching, learning and research but from the standpoint of making a persuasive case for investing in radical learning innovations aligned to the fully engaged scenario of the future.

We are doing something slightly different this year and will be holding an open space event the evening before the conference on 2nd October.  The purpose of this session is to hear from patients who are leading learning across the service.   We will hear from the lead service user from the Peer Exchange Network / Experts by Experience. We have also invited the patient lead for the Comprehensive Self Care Service in Dorset as well as other invited patient leaders of learning from across the service.   We hope you will join us from 5pm for what will be an interesting and challenging session followed by drinks from 7:30pm.

We acknowledge the on-going support of E4PPI by the Higher Education Academy and other supporters. Although the national conversation on E4PPI is not a traditional academic conference, we do welcome contributions from all colleagues, including patients and service users who are actively engaged in work both within the HE sector, the community and health care organisations.

We look forward to meeting you again in October 2013.

Price: The cost is £70 per person, including lunch and refreshments.

Halima Khan, Director – Public Services Lab National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA)will share her experience in leading the national People Powered Health Project across the NHS

Giles Wilmore, Director for Patient and Public Voice and Information, NHS England will address the current imperatives in supporting patient and public voice across the NHS.

Geoff Glover, Assistant Director and Head of Health and Social Care will close the day by drawing our attention to the HEAs future plans for supporting our shared agenda across the Higher Education sector. Over the past two years we have acknowledged the generosity of the Higher Education Academy as our main sponsor for the national conversations.



We use the open space process to enable learning conversations to emerge from our own direct experience.  


  • Provide a minimum but supportive structure
  • Encourage everyone to display passion and responsibility
  • Participants, self-organize the whole process
  • “Whoever comes are the right people”
  • “Whenever it starts is the right time”
  • “Whatever happens is the only thing that can happen”
  • “When it’s over, it’s over”
  • If you’re not getting anything from the session, use ‘the law of two feet’ to move to where you can make a useful contribution


  • People arrive and sit in a circle to indicate that everyone is a leader
  • Facilitators welcome people and explain Open Space Principles and procedure
  • Invited contributors will describe a question that they have, but don’t yet know the answer to, or a challenge they are facing in their PPI work that they need help with
  • Everyone is free to offer other questions and challenges as well as taking responsibility for leading the discussion
  • We have space available for people to work in small groups addressing issues that have been raised
  • Each group will designate a note taker who will share learning from the discussion at the final feedback session
  • We return to the circle for the feedback session and reflect on our conversations, what we have learned from them
