15-16 Nov 2018 - International Perspectives on Evaluation of PPI in Research Conference

Event Date: 

‘International Perspectives on Evaluation of Patient & Public Involvement in Research’
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November, 2018.

Lindisfarne Room, Hadrian Building, King's Road. Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. 

You are cordially invited to take part in this exciting international conference that, so far, brings to you a fantastic line up of key note speakers from the UK, Canada, USA, Denmark and Ireland.

Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)  – also referred to as ‘Patient and Public Engagement’ and ‘Citizen Engagement’ by international colleagues - is the practice or process of patients, members of the public and researchers working together to prioritise, plan, conduct and disseminate research.  PPI is growing in momentum but questions remain about how it should or could be evaluated.

This inaugural conference will provide an international platform to critically explore and reflect on the issue of evaluation of patient and public involvement in research.

For more details and to register see the Newcastle University website.
