Click here to learn more about how you can get involved with projects that are currently recruiting Patient and Public Involvement members.
The Unit of Academic Primary Care at Warwick Medical School is committed to developing active partnerships between ourselves, patients and members of the public.
This commitment means that we seek the involvement of members of the public and patients in all of our research projects. This participation enables Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) members to get involved in our research from the start, as advisers and sometime co-researchers. PPI involvement gives researchers insights into living with or caring for someone with a particular condition or a different perspective on interacting with health services.
We produce a newsletter twice a year to inform those who are interested in PPI about all the current and planned activities within our unit. The newsletter reports on ongoing work, projects that have been completed detailing where PPI was of particular help and will also flag up opportunities to become involved in future activities.
We have a mailing list of interested individuals who wish to receive the newsletter. Additionally from time to time we will send individuals on the mailing list details of particular projects which we think might be of interest. See previous issues from here.
To join the mailing list and to receive the newsletter please get in touch with Dr Carol Bryce on c dot bryce dot 1 at warwick dot ac dot uk. You will be asked to share your email address. Email addresses will be held securely and individuals will be contacted annually to check they wish to remain on the mailing list. Individuals can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.
Meet Geoff, a PPI volunteer who worked as a co-applicant on the parkrun project, and learn more about what it means to be involved as a co-researcher.
