NIHR SPHR Public Partners Network (PAN): A report on 2nd meeting of the PAN held on 13th May 2021
By Jean Palmer and Michelle Collins
A successful virtual event for all the young people’s groups and individuals who have taken part in public involvement and engagement activities within SPHR research over the last five years has taken place.
Ahead of the SPHR Annual Scientific Meeting, PAN members are invited to a meeting of the SPHR Public Partners Network.
Public involvement and engagement in research is not a new concept. Without members of the public engaging with our work as participants, we would not have advanced our knowledge and understanding of the social world over the last few hundred years.
On 5th April 2021, NIHR launched a new guide for patients, carers and members of the public thinking about getting actively involved in research. It offers answers to some frequently asked questions and suggests where you might get advice about your particular circumstances.
This free, confidential and personalised service is coordinated by the Bedford Citizens Advice Bureau to support members of the public whose welfare benefits may be affected by payment for involvement.
A recording of the NIHR School for Public Health Research and the NIHR School for Primary Care Research joint webinar on improving diversity in research is now available.
This event is for all researchers from the three NIHR research Schools with an interest in patient and public involvement and engagement activities.
We will be hosting our first online event for all members of the public involved in our research on 26 November 2020.
