In this course, the attendees will learn what patient and public involvement in research is and the evidence which shows that it is effective. The course draws on the experience of the European Lung Foundation’s (ELF) work with patients and patient organisations to share an understanding of how patient and public involvement differs from research participation, explore different ways in which patients can provide input, its best practices, and challenges.
The course will focus on the development of following questions:
- What is patient involvement and what value can it bring?
- How can patients be involved in research projects?
- Exploring PPI in practice: case studies from EMBARC and BEAT-PCD
- Understanding best practices in PPI, in order to ensure a good experience for those involved
