Event description

Description

This workshop aims to raise awareness about the benefits of involvement, help researchers think about how and when to involve public, patients and carers, and offers researchers a chance to develop a plan for involvement through activities and discussion.

This workshop will cover:

  • What is public and patient involvement in research?
  • How and when to involve people
  • Communicating well with people you involve
  • Planning involvement in your own research

What you will gain:

A greater understanding of Patient and Public Involvement in research, and how to meaningfully incorporate the insight of people with conditions into your research activities, ensuring that your research is relevant and has the greatest impact.

The workshop will be delivered by Chris Macdonald and Maureen Grossman, Arthritis Research UK.

Chris Macdonald, Research Involvement Manager, works across the research directorate at Arthritis Research UK to co-ordinate and integrate public and patient involvement at various stages of the research cycle. This includes prioritising research strategy, and the review and evaluation of research proposals that the charity receives through funding calls.

Maureen Grossman, Patient Insight Partner, joined the charity in 2009 when the first patient insight group, USER committee, was established. She was a biomedical researcher for six years investigating the movement of ions across cell membranes, completing her PhD at Imperial College London. She then moved into education and qualified specifically to teach Science in Inner London Comprehensive schools. Amongst her numerous contributions to the charity, she has helped develop, deliver and establish the training of patient and public involvement for researchers.

This workshop is open to PhD students, researchers, academics and business development staff in any one of the Translate partner universities (Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leeds Beckett, and York).

Spaces are limited and registration is essential. Book now to avoid disappointment.
