Patient and Public Involvement

Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is where members of the public are actively involved in working with researchers to shape research projects. Your experience of being a patient, carer, service user or interested member of the public can improve the quality and impact of the research we carry out.

There are various ways to be involved, for example working with researchers to identify important research questions, helping to develop understandable information for people taking part in research, and ensuring research methods are appropriate for research participants.

This animated film introduces patient and public involvement in mental health and dementia research.

We are currently looking for a patient and a carer with experience of district nursing to join the steering group of a project identifying research priorities  in district nursing. Full details are available here.

Alternatively visit the Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (OHBRC) Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) web pages to find out about our current opportunities and for links to other PPI resources.
