Event Details

Public Involvement in Research - The Role of Children, Young People and Adults with Communication Disabilities and their Families/Carers in a Major Research Project

 

Delivered within an NIHR funded project: Identifying appropriate symbol communication aids for children who are non-speaking: enhancing clinical decision-making (I-ASC) (Health Services & Delivery Research Project: 14/70/153).

 

The focus of the workshop is around public involvement (PI) in research. The I-ASC project was clear from the outset that people of all ages with significant communication disability and their family members/carers could remain central to the research and have their voices heard. This session will share the experiences of those involved and the extent of their involvement. This will include I-ASC project resources and tools which will be used to demonstrate how it is possible to hear the opinions and views of all research participants, irrespective of communication disability, and how service users worked as equal members of the research team from conception of the project brief through to evaluation of how the project was produced and disseminated.

 

This FREE workshop at Science and Industry Museum in Manchester will be of interest to:

  • Service users and their families who would like to be involved in research.
  • Researchers who would aim to include service users and families within their studies
  • Funders of research
  • Service delivery commissioners
  • Practitioners working in the field of communication disability

The workshop will include the following sessions:

  • What do we mean by public involvement and why is it important?
  • The I-ASC project and its approach to public involvement
  • Approaches to involving children and young people in research
  • Evaluation of public involvement on the I-ASC project - how did we do it and what did we find?

Speakers will include:

  • From the I-ASC team: Stuart Meredith and Liz Moulam (PI co-researchers) Professor Janice Murray, Dr Mark Jayes, Helen Whittle.
  • A panel of invited speakers who include service users and family members, researchers, and policy consultants.
