We often have a waiting list so please will you let us know if your plans change and you can no longer attend.


Introduction to the workshop:

The Building Research Partnerships workshop explores how the public (including for example patients, service users, and carers) can get involved in health and social care research and work with professionals (researchers, academics and health professionals) in the research process. The workshop aims to support members of the public to get involved in research by outlining different types of research methods and terminology, and exploring different aspects of the involvement role. It also aims to support researchers who would like to involve the public in the planning, conduct and sharing findings of research to develop their understanding of the involvement role. The workshop will explore a variety of ways to actively and constructively involve the public.

Following the workshop you will be able to apply your knowledge and experience in a practical way to your own situation to help improve public involvement and participative decision making in research.

The workshop aims to enable participants to:

  • Understand and explain what research is, how it works and why it is important for the public to be involved with professionals at every stage of a research project.
  • Understand and explain the process called the ‘research cycle’ and how the public can be involved in that process.
  • Understand the involvement role and a variety of ways to involve members of the public in research.
  • Understand the importance of partnership working for members of the public and professionals.

Each workshop brings together a unique mixture of people with their own experiences, views and ideas. An essential part of the workshop is the interaction between participants during the day, so you will meet new people, share knowledge and experiences, and explore opportunities to apply the learning from the day. The training is designed to encourage you to get to know other participants, network and build partnerships. At the end of the workshop you may wish to share your contact details with other participants.
