Patient and public involvement in research: What, why and how?

The newly formed International PPI Network will be delivering a regular programme of webinars that cover a wide range of issues related to patient and public involvement and engagement in health and social research in a global context.

Our webinar series will open with an introduction to patient and public involvement in health and social care research. Acknowledging that different countries use different terminology the presenters will explain how involvement in research differs from participation in research. They will go on to articulate why patient and public involvement is important and how it can improve research. Finally, the presenters will share their examples and key tips of how to do it. There will also be time for a question and answer session.

This webinar is designed to be of benefit to people who are interested in understanding and developing Patient and Public Involvement in health and social research. It will be especially of interest to people in countries where PPI is not yet fully developed.Whether you are new to patient and public involvement in research or more experienced but would like some context and/or tips then this seminar will be suitable for you.
