Consultation: draft national standards for public involvement in research

Over the last year, the Public Involvement Standards Development Partnership has been developing a set of national, core standards and indicators for public involvement (PI) in research that can be used by organisations, research projects and individuals to improve the quality and consistency of PI.
Here is a summary of the steps the NIHR have taken so far and their plans for future work.
As you can see, they would now like to involve you in reviewing and giving them feedback on the draft standards and indicators. For example:  
  • Do they capture what good public involvement in research looks like from your perspective?
  • Will they be of practical use to you? What have they missed out?
  • How can they improve them?

The consultation will be running until Friday 1 September 2017. Please visit the project website for more detailed information about the consultation process and to access all the resources you might need:
If you have any questions or queries about the consultation please contact the PPI team at the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility:
