NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands provides a wide range of opportunities for stakeholder engagement and participation across all of its structures, themes and projects.
Our Public Involvement (PI) Programme will enable intended end-users of research to shape its selection, design, delivery, dissemination and implementation.
We pro-actively involve patients as co-producers of research and implementation to ensure that:
NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands also engages with the wider public across the region. This takes many forms including the production of leaflets and posters targeted at a general audience, organising open information-sharing events and the use of social, print and broadcast media to promote NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands activities and achievements.
A webinar aimed at NIHR trainees and other researchers who are leading research projects and want to learn more about getting the best out of PPI can be found here.
It is presented by Derek Stewart OBE, Associate Director for Patient and Public Involvement at NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) and Paula Wray, former PI Programme Lead for CLAHRC EM.
We have been lucky to have a great external and public advisory group which meet regularly to contribute their knowledge and experience to the SOPRANO project.
Some of the most valuable input of the advisory group has been in designing our interview schedule to use with commissioners, third sector organisations, and older people. The advisory group highlighted where some of the language was overly complex or if the meaning of certain questions might be misconstrued by our participants. They also suggested new lines of enquiry which was very helpful to ensure we gain the most useful information in our interviews.
Our advisory group is quite diverse and consists of members of the public, representatives from the third sector, commissioners, health care professionals, and academics. We always welcome new interested members so please get in touch if you would like to help us with our research.
