What is research involvement?

Involvement means helping with how the research project runs. You may be asked to comment on the research design or practical aspects of the study. You may be asked about personal experience of the NHS to help researchers consider how their study might work ‘on the ground’.

The CRN PPI Team have developed a monthly newsletter "Getting Involved in Research" to provide people with a way to stay engaged in research and to find out about opportunities to be involved. The newsletter is aimed at the members of the public, including past and present research participants and goes out on the third Monday of each month.
