Course Detail

RS416 - Introduction to Public and Patient Involvement

In this workshop we discuss how directly engaging patients, carers and the public can serve as effective means to inform your research throughout the research process.

During this session we will discuss several examples of good practice from QMUL and UK researchers who have engaged clinical patients to not only engage and inform them, but to have them inform and contribute to their research process.

The roles that patients can play in research (not including in clinical trials) will be explored. Finally, we will also discuss practical and logistical elements in planning and running the engagement which will help to provide you with evidence and potential metrics of direct impact on those in attendance and the means to explore and exploit that information


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand how involving patients in your research fits into the landscape of public engagement
  • Identify examples of good practice in the area both within QMUL and nationwide
  • Become more acquainted with the relevant tools and techniques to maximise the impact of your patient interaction
  • Have gained Insight on how to evidence your involvement with patients, and potential aims and metrics
