Guide for researchers

The guide aims to help researchers think about the opportunities to involve patients, carers, families using health and social care services, people with lived experience of health conditions, patient advocacy organisations, and members of the public in their research. The guide explains what patient and public involvement (PPI) is, what it involves, and gives suggestions about how to involve contributors in all parts of the research cycle and knowledge translation. It also explains the importance of recognising and valuing PPI and gives examples of good practice.
