Information for researchers

We want to give you all the assistance you need to involve lay contributors in your research such that it is a productive experience for them and for your project

We have produced a ‘PPI Guide for Researchers. This document can be used by any research staff involving patients, carers, members of the public and members of voluntary organisations in their research work. There are templates for you to download and adapt.  It is a living document which with your help will continue to be updated and improved, so we welcome any suggestions or feedback you may have. 

 

Please give the Welcome Pack to new lay contributors on your project.
