People Power: The Value of Involving Patients in Research
Fri 19 May 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
Join us for an evening discussing the importance of researchers working with patients. We will explore research studies where patients have played an influential role and hear how academics can work with patients to transform services. An exhibition will take place from 5.30–6pm and 7–7.45pm at SITraN.
Speakers will include:
- Professor Brendan Stone from the School of English, was given the Excellence in Patient Experience Award by the NHS Yorkshire and Humber Leadership Academy in recognition of his work to improve support services for people with mental health issues.
- Dr Esther Hobson from SITraN will speak about patient and public involvement both through the Sheffield Motor Neurone Disease (MND)Research Advisory Group and involvement on specific projects including the Sheffield Support Snood, MyTube (an information website made with patients for patients with MND) and TiM (telehealth in MND).
You can also book to attend a tour of the NIHR Clinical Research Facility on Friday 19 May, from 5-5.30pm.
