PPI Workshops

The workshops are unique in the area of PPI, are co-designed and co-delivered by patient trainers, and give the opportunity to participants to discuss specific challenges in their own studies with experienced service users.

The workshops are delivered in partnership with NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.

  • How patients and the public can be involved at each stage of the research cycle
