Event description

Description

The Collaboration for Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (CLAHRC NWC) and School of Public Health Research (SPHR) embraces the principles of public involvement by including patients, service users, carers and communities of interest across all their work. Public involvement enhances the quality of research. It can transform the quality of health and social care and the conditions in which people live. This workshop presents learning from research and practice conducted in these two programmes.

Ensuring a fruitful partnership between researchers and members of the public has its rewards but it also comes with challenges. CLAHRC NWC is evaluating what works to support public involvement and to understand the impact it can have on practice. The SPHR Communities in Control study evaluated the involvement of residents in 150 areas in England to improve their neighbourhoods and decided how resources were spent in their area.

This workshop will:

  • Illustrate the positive effects of public involvement ,empowerment and control in research

  • Consider public involvement on the impact on health inequalities

  • Highlight good practice and challenges in public involvement in research

  • Share preliminary findings of the public involvement evaluation undertaken by CLAHRC
