Patient and Public Involvement


Patients and the public are central to the delivery of this research.

The ReSPECT in Primary Care Patient and Public Engagement and Advisory Panel consists of six patient and public representatives. They meet approximately every three months at Warwick Medical School (WMS) to advise the researchers on different aspects of the study, including the design, patient and public facing documentation, analysis, and interpretation of findings. The panel includes patients and carers who have experience of emergency care and end of life decisions, long term conditions and experience of living with a disability. Frequent communication is maintained between the panel and the research team based at WMS.

The panel will be consulted and involved in all stages of the study.

There is a Patient and Public engagement representative on the research team and two on the study’s Independent Study Steering Committee.

Patients’ and their families’ views are crucial to this evaluation as is the impact of ReSPECT on the care and treatment they receive. Work Packages 1 and 3 will collect different sorts of information from patients and family members and from their medical records. For more information, please click hereLink opens in a new window
