SPCR PPIE grants showcase
Thursday, 30 September 2021, 12.30pm to 2pm
In 2019 and 2020 the NIHR School for Primary Care Research has run competitions and funded several projects to enable researchers to identify creative and more inclusive approaches to patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE).
On Thursday 30th September 12.30 - 14.00, three of the funded projects will present what they have done and learned from these projects. There will be the opportunity after each presentation to ask the presenters questions about their project. The event will be hosted via Zoom.
Registration to attend the event is required and places are limited. Please complete the form below by 28 September the latest:
The following projects will be presented during the event:
Working together with community groups from different ethnic background and clinicians, the team reached out to better identify the barriers and facilitators to research participation. In addition, they looked into the factors affecting clinician-patient communication in these communities..
Angeli Vaid and Charlotte Albury
In this co-designed and co-delivered project, people with learning disabilities and their family carers worked together as a team with researchers to identify what training is needed for people with learning disabilities & family carers before they act as co-researcher ethnographers. The team aimed to find out what people with learning disabilities and family carers wanted in their training, rather than it being identified solely by the researcher. The final step was to produce training resources to be piloted by co-researchers in a piece of live research.
Opeyemi Babatunde, Shoba Dawson and Stephanie Tierney
The project stimulated conversations with people who are often excluded from identifying research topics relevant to them. Researchers initiated these conversations with people affected by dementia, people from a South Asian background and people living with mental health conditions on what research matters to them. Arts students attended the meetings to visually capture what is important for these communities to inspire future research.
