Translate MedTech – Patient and Public Involvement


26 MARCH 2020

We are currently exploring whether all remaining courses can be delivered online after having successfully delivered our Business Case Planning and Pitching course this way. You can still register your interest for a place on this course by emailing Mohua Siddique – anyone that has done so will be kept informed about the delivery of the course as soon as we have any updates.

This training course aims to raise awareness about the benefits of involvement, helping researchers think about how and when to involve public, patients and carers, and offers researchers a chance to develop a plan for involvement through activities and discussion.

Open to academics, researchers, clinicians and industry representatives, the one day course will cover:

  • What is public and patient involvement in research?
  • How and when to involve people
  • Communicating well with people you involve
  • Planning involvement in your own research

By the end of the day you will:

  • Have a greater understanding of Public and Patient Involvement in research
  • Understand how to meaningfully incorporate the insight of people with conditions into your research activities
  • Understand how to ensure that your research is relevant and has the greatest impact.

This course is free to staff and postgraduate research students at Translate MedTech partner universities (Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leeds Beckett, Sheffield Hallam and York). Places for industry and clinical representatives are available at a cost of £300, please email Mohua Siddique to register your interest in attending this course.

The training course will be run by Versus Arthritis.
