An opportunity to share your opinion on how research you have been involved in should be evaluated.
This workshop is for people (patients and members of the public) who are, or who have been, involved in research.
A resounding call for evidence of impact from the involvement of patients and members of the public (PPI) in health research has put Evaluation - with a capital E - high on the PPI agenda. However 'impact' in the context of PPI can mean many different things to many different people, and often depends on how PPI and its purpose are understood. This makes evaluation challenging in terms of knowing what should be evaluated and how, and what a good evidence-base should look like.
There isn't much known about how people who get involved in research view these issues, nor what they believe to be the important impacts of involvement. This will be the focus of this PPI Evaluation Workshop. The findings of the workshop will be presented at our forthcoming conference 'International Perspectives on Evaluation of PPI in Research' taking place on 15th & 16th November this year, giving you a unique opportunity to inform a much wider debate on these important and pressing issues.
The PPI Evaluation Workshop is free but places are limited to 40 participants. A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided and participants will receive £25 in vouchers in recognition of their contribution, plus reimbursement of travel costs.
