Patient and Public Involvement in Research Workshop 2: service user-led research
Saturday 7 December @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Three local NIHR organisations – the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) Oxford and the NIHR Oxford Health BRC – are running a series of workshops in 2019 and 2020 for patients and members of the public.
Each workshop will cover a different topic and explore ways in which patients and members of the public can get involved in research. You are welcome to attend as many or as few in the series as you wish.
These events are designed for people who are interested in how patient and public involvement can shape research. They will be most relevant for – and priority will be given to – people living in the Thames Valley area and those who are involved with or interested in the work of the three organisations leading the workshop.
Places are free but limited and you must register to attend.
