Launch and Symposium: Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) in Research

Thursday 26th April 2018, 10:00-12:00pm

4th Floor, DCU Invent Building, Glasnevin Campus

Public and patient involvement (PPI) in research is research carried out 'with' or 'by' members of the public rather than 'to', 'about' or 'for' them (www.invo.org.uk).

At this symposium the Health Research Board (HRB) funded PPI Ignite project at DCU will be launched. This DCU project aims to support and promote capacity building at an organisational level for high quality PPI in health and social care research.

This overall project and initial symposium is important for health and social care researchers to engage with, as the HRB, alongside many international funding bodies, move towards the active involvement of public and patients as peer reviewers and the inclusion of PPI as a critical evaluation criterion for the successful funding of health and social care research in the future.
