Help shape research
Involving the public in the research process (Patient and Public involvement) rather than just as a participant in a study aims to improve the quality and relevance of studies by ensuring the public perspective is incorporated. Many research funders now expect applicants to demonstrate how they have involved members of the public in the design and conduct of their research.
Members of the public involved in research would typically:
- Help identify topics for research and ensure topics are relevant to patients, carers and members of the public
- Ensure researchers ask the right questions and in a way that the public understand
- Ensure people being researched are approached in the right way
- Improve the quality of research by adding another point of view to the way research is undertaken.
Cardiovascular Research Patient and Public Event Day, Glasgow – 25th April 2019
Following the success of a similar event 2 years ago, a Cardiovascular Research day was hosted for patients and their families to hear about the latest research and outcomes of projects they were involved in. The event took place at the Teaching and Learning Centre at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus on the 25th of April 2019, and aimed to provide an opportunity to bring patients and clinicians together.
