PPI training – How to do PPI: focus groups and more

18 November 2020, 2-4pm | ONLINE EVENT
The BRC runs a programme of regular workshops for researchers at UCLPartner organisations on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research.

*Due to the current UK situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding all scheduled workshops online*


This session is for anyone who understands the role of PPI, and wants to put their learning into practice. The session examines PPI methods in depth, including cost, how to choose the right method for your project, and with a particular look at how to run a PPI focus group.

23 September 2020 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm

21 October 2020 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm

18 November 2020 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm

The award-winning sessions build up researchers’ skills in involving lay people in activities including setting research priorities and designing protocols.

Attendees get career points as workshops are included in UCL’s Doctoral Skills Development Programme. Workshops are supported by the Wellcome Trust.
