Event description

Description

Meet, talk, share

At this event you can meet maternity and women’s health researchers working at NIHR CLAHRC South London, hear about their research and discuss how we can involve more London women in maternity research. We want your thoughts about co-production in research. The purpose of the event is to facilitate further public and patient involvement in CLAHRC South London's maternity and women's health research.

Objectives for the workshop:

• Bring together researchers with south London maternity voices partnership leaders, Healthwatch officers and volunteers and other key people with an interest in maternity research
• Address access to services, equity, experiences of women and families and ways of engaging harder-to-reach groups in research
• Motivate women and the public to be involved with research; to feel that research is relevant - not boring, ‘made up’, or irrelevant.

Topics that we will discuss inlcude:

The importance of women knowing their midwife
• What matters in maternity care for women and families
• Pregnancy complications, including high blood pressure
• How to make being involved in maternity research a positive experience for women
• What you want to know about research - from designing studies to sharing research results.

Networking, workshop, lunch

The first 30 minutes of the session will be for introductions, networking and introducing the maternity voices partnerships in south London, including what they do and how they work.

The research workshop will be run from 10.30am to 1pm. We will then break for lunch and more informal information sharing. We hope you will stay for lunch, but you are free to go any time after 1pm. We will leave the room by 2pm.

If you’d like to join us, please register!
