The NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with UCLPartners is running a programme of regular award-winning workshops for clinical academic researchers on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research.

  • The workshops, which are free and open to researchers working in UCLPartners partnership organisations, are practical and aim to build up researchers’ skills in effectively involving lay people in the research process from setting research priorities to designing protocols. Now in their third year, the workshops will be spread over a longer period of time (May to December 2016) than previous years as a long term resource available to a wider community.

    Workshops are organised into level of experience in order to offer the right level of training to all, and cover topics such as:

    • How to fill out the PPI section in a grant form
    • Setting up and supporting a lay panel
    • Developing facilitation skills for PPI
    • Accessing patients and the public

    A maximum of two courses can be booked per person and workshops are free to attend.

    More information, including the full programme and details of how to book a place, please visit the UCLH BRC website.
