A partnership and panel event to support School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) FR15/16 applications.
In a move to promote best practice in public involvement, the SPCR has funded six pilot ‘pre-grant’ involvement workshops to support potential FR15 and FR16 funding bids.
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.
