Rethinking recruitment for public involvement
Dr Julie Hapeshi
Thursday 14 June 2018, 13:00, Room 4C23, Frenchay Campus
Julie has a split role between Deputy Director of Research and Development in Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Deputy Director and PPI lead for the NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) Research Design Service South West. This gives Julie a unique view of NHS research from both the design and delivery perspectives and the impact that public involvement can have on research. This seminar will consider whether we need to rethink how we recruit public contributors or lay members to work with us. Is there such a thing as “lay expertise” and is the regularly heard comment that public contributors become too expert over time really such a bad thing? If we considered recruiting them for their expertise rather than denying it exists would we be better off? The seminar will also introduce participants to the links between the Research Design Service and NIHR INVOLVE – the national advisory group on public involvement in research. The seminar is run by the public involvement team at UWE and People in Health West of England.
We look forward to seeing you. There is no need to register just come along. Rosie Davies email@example.com
