* @NIHR_trainees Introductory webinar about PPI

We will be hosting a live one hour webinar about involving patients and the public in your research on Tuesday 23 February at 11am.

 This is an introductory webinar for researchers with little or no experience of patient and public involvement (PPI). This webinar is aimed at aspiring NIHR trainees and early career researchers.

We expect the active involvement of members of the public in the research that we fund. Members of the public will review your research proposal and they also sit on some of our funding and commissioning boards and panels to support our decision-making.

This webinar will include:

  •  An overview of what PPI is and why it is important in research
  • Why PPI is important to the NIHR and how best to demonstrate PPI in an application – including signposts to NIHR resources around PPI
  • Q&A session 

 The webinar will be presented by Philippa Yeeles, Director of Involvement and Engagement at the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility alongside Anne-Laure Donskoy, an NIHR Panel Member and independent researcher.

 As this is a live webinar, attendees will be able to send questions in to the speakers and we will try to answer as many as possible during the webinar. If you would like to send your question in advance, please email tcc@nihr.ac.uk with the subject: ‘PPI Webinar question’.
