By members of the public we mean public contributors who might be patients, service users, family members, or carers. By professionals we mean academics, researchers, research managers, health and care professionals and other staff organising involvement activities.
Examples of our workshops include:
- Building Research Partnerships. This is an introductory one-day workshop on public involvement that explores how the public (including patients, service users, carers, and family members) can get involved in health and social care research and work with professionals (researchers, academics and health professionals) in the research process.
- Enhancing Facilitation Skills. This half-day workshop is for researchers, health professionals and other staff currently running public involvement meetings and groups. It is also for members of the public who are, or will be, facilitating involvement activities.
- Human Factors in patient safety training
- Using and Understanding Research Evidence. This is a one-day workshop for members of the public providing an introduction to research and the tools and skills needed to find and assess the reliability of research evidence relating to health.
- Workshops for members of the public to generate ideas for health research. From time to time we run workshops to support members of the public to refine ideas about health related issues they feel are important and develop them into research questions.
