Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) participant sought in Glasgow for national heart failure study
12th November 2015
A national heart failure study (SUPPORT HF) is looking for a Patient Public Involvement representative in Glasgow.
SUPPORT-HF is an NIHR HS&DR and NIHR Oxford-BRC funded trial, which is led jointly by the George Institute for Global Health and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford.
The overall aim of the SUPPORT-HF research programme is to develop and evaluate an integrated, patient-centered, affordable and sustainable system for proactive heart failure management based on patients’ needs and capacity using innovative technologies and methodologies for service design.
The primary role of the PPI members is to provide the steering committee with a patient/public perspective on the research agenda and execution of the project, and will involve meeting 2 - 3 times annually with some infrequent email and telephone communication in between.
The Patient and Public Involvement participant, should ideally have experience with heart failure or other chronic diseases, either as a patient or as a carer, for example for a close family member, and be interested in healthcare research.
