About Inventive Involvement
The PPI Coordinator for the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford and the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences has produced a series of documents aimed to help research staff consider ways of approaching PPI that may be different from what they have done before.
These pdfs are offered as possibilities and not requirements.
They provide ideas of how you can do PPI beyond inviting people to be on trial steering committees or on advisory groups.
They also include ideas for how you may work with people differently in more traditional meetings, using different communication techniques and styles.
We welcome your views on how helpful or not you find these resources – please let us know if anything is unclear and how we could improve it.
