You are cordially invited to take part in this exciting international conference that brings to you key note speakers from the UK, Canada, USA, Denmark and Ireland.
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) – also referred to as ‘Patient and Public Engagement’ and ‘Citizen Engagement’ by international colleagues - is the practice or process of patients, members of the public and researchers working together to prioritise, plan, conduct and disseminate research. PPI is growing in momentum but questions remain about how it should or could be evaluated.
This inaugural conference will provide an international platform to critically explore and reflect on the issue of evaluation of patient and public involvement in research.
Attendance and abstract submission is invited from both the ‘professional’ and PPI communities. We are interested in research that covers all aspects of health research, with no restrictions to specific areas such as ageing and primary care.
Information will follow regarding registration and our bursary scheme for PPI partners.
Please see our provisional Programme and line up of confirmed speakers.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful city and University campus
This conference is generously and enthusiastically supported by our University and Faculty of Medical Sciences Engagement teams, and our sponsors, the Institute of Health & Society, School of Primary Care Research, and NENC Clinical Research Network.
