We provide training in collaboration with the Research Design Service, London on Implementing Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) in Research. You can find details of upcoming sessions on our events page.

The workshops are unique in the area of PPI, being co-designed and co-delivered by trained patients representatives giving participants the opportunity to discuss specific challenges in their own studies with experienced service users. The workshops are targeted towards researchers who are currently in the process of applying for research funding to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) or similar funding streams.

What will the training cover?

  • An overview of what effective PPI is and what it is not in the context of research
  • How patients and the public can be involved at every stage of the research cycle
  • Practical planning for effective PPI
  • Clarification on what resources and support structures exist in the Research Design Service (RDS) and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London.

Who can attend?

The courses are free for health researcher and healthcare professionals across London.

You can find the details of upcoming Implementing PPI sessions on our events page.
