Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research: sharing ideas from across the pond

Involving the public and patients in research is widely recognised as vital to good quality research, but there is a lot of variation in why and how this is done. In this webinar, I will explore the range of different rationales used for PPI, the ways these impact on the process of involvement, and the evaluation of impacts. I will argue that it is vital to make our rationales explicit in order to maximise success.  I will draw on our experiences of involving patients in research and practice across a range of different projects in the UK, and make some specific recommendations for future practice. Discussion might usefully focus on similarities and differences across the UK and Canada, and how we can all learn from sharing
