I heard about this workshop after helping out Bethany Bareham at a training event for PGR students in Newcastle University (read about it here). I found one of the issues raised in that event with regards to how to engage with a bigger variety of people during PPI activities fascinating.


The SPCR recently hosted 6 workshops to promote patient and public involvement in the early stages of study design, to support potential FR15 and 16 funding bids. One such workshop titled 'Clinical trials- online recruitment and electronic health records' was attended by public contributor Eric Deeson, who has written about his experiences on the day.


My cohort consisted of 14 trainees including myself, with participants from all over Canada and also two from Australia. We were from a wide range of backgrounds – psychology, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, family medicine, health services research – which made for some really interesting discussions.
