Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement in Research
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) with research can be done in different ways. Examples include:
- Encouraging members of the public to join advisory groups supporting research
- Reviewing grant proposals and research methodologies
- Contributing as active partners in research
- Helping with data collection or analysis
A booklet has been created to help researchers based at MFT with public involvement and engagement activities. It aims to highlight the benefits of researchers listening to the public to help inform and influence research and of raising awareness and building stronger relationships with the public around biomedical research.

The Public Programmes Team at MFT also offer support services for public engagement and involvement activities.
