Launch event: patient & public involvement peer-to-peer support forum

The launch of a new on-line resource for patients and public involved in research or teaching

Date/Time: 30th November 2016, 12:00 - 16:30

Venue: Lindisfarne Room, Kings Road Centre, Newcastle University

This half day event is to formally launch an exciting new on-line resource that will provide advice, support and training for people (patients and public) who are, or who are interested in being, involved in research or teaching.  The event is for researchers and members of the public.  As well as a demonstration of the new web-based resource, participants will hear the findings of our recent PPI consultation and will be given the opportunity to comment on and help shape our subsequent PPI support and training framework.   In the spirit of getting involved, the event will also include a PPI ‘Market Place’ where opportunities for involvement in research or teaching can be sought and tendered!
