Building Partnerships with Creativity and Justice: Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) in health care and research
Are you connected to Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) and keen to know more and build partnerships? You are invited to join experts at Exeter University for a 3-day in-person summer school.
The Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated the vital links between research, communities and public engagement as the new vaccines and their rollout progressed. Unprecedented levels of media coverage included a wide spectrum of public opinion, which ranged from scepticism and misinformation through to support and gratitude. Over half a million members of the public joined the Covid research registry and many are still taking part in trials.
This timely hybrid course is an opportunity to explore beyond the numbers and the rhetoric. We will examine innovative and honest ways of generating and spreading knowledge. We will also explore how to foster the uptake of this knowledge through partnerships with care sectors, the public and communities. Partnerships that reflect creativity and justice.
Dr Kristin Liabo (PPIE Team Lead) has brought together a team with a wide range of expertise which includes members of the College of Medicine and Health and its patient and public partners. This group will deliver an informative and thought-provoking experience for researchers and others with an interest in Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE).
This interdisciplinary course is relevant to researchers undertaking health and care research, including PhD students, and people in PPIE co-ordinator/facilitator roles. Linking research and practice, it will be tailored to those who are working across different disciplines in healthcare, social care, and public health.
