Translate MedTech – Public and Patient Involvement

Are you wanting to engage with potential users of your medical device but not sure where to start? Do you want to ensure your medical device is relevant and will be used?

This training course aims to raise awareness about the benefits of involvement, help 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.

This training 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.

Open to staff and postgraduate research students at Translate partner universities only (Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leeds Beckett, Sheffield Hallam and York).
