Get Involved in Improving Healthcare
Thursday, 6 April 2017 from 13:00 to 14:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We are a team of researchers at the Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR) at Oxford Brookes University and are in the process of setting up a community group to help us influence the health care research carried out in your local area. The health care research may involve working alongside some of the hospitals/ GP practices/other health care providers in Oxfordshire. We would like to invite you to join our group so we can work with you to develop and conduct research projects that are relevant to you and your community.
We are looking for a diverse group of patients, carers or people who use the National Health Service to join our group, to help us develop projects that can make health care more patient-centred. We are interested in talking to people from a wide range of ethnicities, cultures and sexualities, as well as people from under-represented groups such as mental health service users, disabled people and single parents.
This is an informal meeting to discuss how we take our group forward. You do not need to have any research or medical skills knowledge; all you need is some experience of health care service, no matter how big or small!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Please note, you only need to attend one of the "Get Involved in Healthcare" sessions.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please feel free to get in contact, especially if you have any access requirements.

This event is run in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, and Health Education England Thames Valley.
When & Where
Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Health Research and Oxford Brookes University
The Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR) is an Oxford Brookes University led partnership between key stakeholders to lead and participate in world class research and evidence-based practice that will produce knowledge to enhance the health and wellbeing of the population of Oxford, Oxfordshire, The Thames Valley, and beyond. We have a particular interest in innovation and best practice at the point of care.
OxINMAHR researchers take a broad, holistic view of health, to encompass physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, cultural and social elements; and, consider health and illness to occur in the context of family life. Thus, health issues and challenges are viewed as being concerns for individuals, as well as their families and communities.
OxINMAHR researchers see quality health care as a basic human right and the work of the Institute is underpinned by commitments to reduce health inequity and enhance social justice. OxINMAHR researchers recognise the crucial role and potential of nurses and allied health professionals in providing sustainable, cost effective solutions to the health and well-being related challenges facing individuals, families and communities. We embrace a team approach to health care and recognise the value of combining expertise and adopting interdisciplinary approaches to addressing complex problems.
Our researchers have a specialist focus on research that; (i) Enhances patient safety and well-being; (ii) Enhances health equity and social justice; and, (iii) Promotes health workforce resilience and sustainability.
