Patients and the Public have an impact

Our PPI Contributors get involved in our research because they want to make a positive contribution.  There are many ways in which their impact can be felt; as it relates to the research (e.g. data collection, design and delivery, time and cost) or as it relates to the people involved (e.g. members of the public involved in research, academic researchers and funders).

Some impacts may be seen in the short term (e.g. on patient information documents) others may take longer to be seen or be more complex to identify (e.g. on recruitment of participants to trials). 


Find out more about some of the national and local impacts of patient & public involvement in health research in our newsletter or at the INVOLVE website
