We aim to give you all the support and guidance you need to involve PPI contributors in your research so that it is a successful experience for them, for you and for your project.
PPI staff from across the Medical Sciences Division have produced ‘PPI guidance for researchers’. This is available for anyone to use to help with their PPI activities. It includes information on the ways to do PPI, how to incorporate it at different stages of the research cycle, templates for you to adapt and useful contacts.
We welcome your feedback so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments.
