An Invitation to the Patient Involvement Fair
09.30-15.30, 23 March 2017 - John McIntyre Conference Centre, Edinburgh
The Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research will be hosting our first Patient Involvement Fair at the John McIntyre Conference Centre in Edinburgh on the 23 March 2017. We are inviting all Centre researchers, affiliates, and collaborators to attend this event and learn more about how to carry out PPI relevant for your research.
The keynote will be provided by Derek Stewart OBE, Associate Director for patient and public involvement for the NIHR Clinical Research Networks Coordinating Centre and Chair of the Throat Cancer Foundation. He has been instrumental in advancing patient involvement in health research and has previously been involved at local, network, and national levels.
There will be opportunities to speak with members of our patient group and get feedback about your research, as well as attend interactive workshops co-facilitated by patient volunteers, including:
- Practical planning for PPI in your study
- Including PPI in your funding applications
- Writing an Effective Lay Summary
- Top Tips for Engaging People in your Research
