If so, you will know that most research funders require that people potentially affected by the conduct or the findings of research have a say in its design and delivery. Achieving this can present challenges and so the Research Design Service for the East Midlands is offering a number of workshops for those who are actively working on a research bid and want to enhance patient and public involvement (PPI).
The PPI workshops are designed to help researchers to plan meaningful and appropriate PPI in their research proposals in order to improve the overall quality of a bid. They will give researchers an opportunity to consider PPI during bid development and beyond, helping researchers capture this within their applications. The session will include a combination of information giving and group discussion. Each session will last three hours and will have a maximum attendance of ten people.
1.To learn how the Research Design Service for the East Midlands can support your bid development
2.To learn about the difficulties associated with demonstrating impact of PPI in your research
3.To explore how to incorporate appropriate and meaningful PPI in designing, conducting and disseminating your research
4.To learn about research governance procedures and PPI
5.To relate new knowledge about PPI to the requirements of the funding stream
6.To consider the practicalities and challenges of PPI in your research
The RDS will be visiting the University of LInoln on the 11th July for their next workshop (2-5pm) To book your place on the workshop and gain invaluable advice on your proposal please contact Karen Taylor.
