Event description

Description

- Are you planning to apply to the NIHR, a research council or other funder?

- Is there a requirement for service user involvement?

Over the past two decades, the involvement of service users in the design and conduct of research and delivery of services has become a kite mark for high quality research and services. In health, social care and social justice research, participatory research, co-production or PPI (Public and Patient Involvement) forms part of the funding criteria for Research Councils and other grant making bodies. For researchers this presents both an opportunity and a challenge. This workshop will explore some of the concerns that researchers may have including

What approaches are effective in engaging service users in research and service design?

What are the common pitfalls?

What are the benefits for research and for service users?

This seminar will present examples from practice of involving service users in current and previous projects. Confirmed speakers are: Dr Jackie Robinson, Co-production with service users with Asperger’s syndrome; Dr Maria Berghs, From emancipatory disability research in Sierra Leone to working with politically active disabled people in the UK, Dr Helen Mitchell, Public and patient involvement in research in endometriosis; Dr Ana Szabo and Di Turgoose, service user involvement in sexual and domestic violence services; Periklis Papaloukas, PhD Candidate, Engaging participants and the public in research: Reflections from the #DMUEngage event and the LGBT living with multiple sclerosis study, Raksha Pandya-Wood, NIHR, the work of the Research Design Service..
