Abstract call now open for ‘International Perspectives on Evaluation of PPI in Research’, a conference will provide an international platform to critically explore and reflect on the issue of evaluation of patient and public involvement in research. The conference will be held in Newcastle upon Tyne on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November, 2018.

We are now accepting abstracts for oral, poster and workshop presentations for this conference.

Closing date for submissions is Tuesday 31st July.

Reviewer decisions will be available mid-August.

The conference provides an exciting opportunity for shared learning and for showcasing your patient and public involvement (PPI) in research to an international audience.

Rather than pre-set themes we will shape the thematic structure of our parallel sessions and poster presentations around the topics covered within submitted abstracts.

Submissions are therefore invited that reflect a range of PPI experience, academic and philosophical interests, and diversity in the practice and evaluation of PPI in research.

Abstracts are invited from both the ‘professional’ and PPI communities.

Abstracts led by professionals should ideally include PPI co-authors.

Find out more about our abstract call here. Submit your abstract by email here.

The conference website is now live with further information about the 2-day programme, our fantastic line up of speakers, the conference venue and registration.

A small number of bursaries will be available to support attendance of PPI delegates, details will be provided when registration opens in July.
