What is DCU PPI Ignite

Patient and public involvement (PPI) is research conducted ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them. DCU PPI Ignite is a three year project that aims to support and promote capacity building at an organisational level for high quality public and patient involvement in DCU health and social care research.
