This PPIE planner was funded and developed by the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University and the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) The NIHR Newcastle BRC is a partnership between Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle University, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
The COVID-19 pandemic helped us identify a need to support our researchers to better plan their patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) activities. We aimed to develop a digital planning tool, which could be used by researchers to plan their PPIE activities. Importantly this tool enables researchers to consider PPIE at different stages of the research cycle, diversity and inclusion, and measuring impact. We consulted with colleagues at NIHR Centre for Engagement and Dissemination to avoid any duplication in developing similar resources.
We hope this tool will be useful to researchers to better plan their PPIE activities.Access the PPIE Planner
