This series will highlight the importance of patient and public involvement (PPI) throughout the research cycle, from design to dissemination. PPI is gaining importance to identify treatments that better meet people's needs and are more likely to be adopted in practice. We are delighted to host four seminars by prominent keynotes in occupational therapy, mental health, social work, health demographics, education and national health governance.
