Public and Patient Involvement Research Road Show March 2013
Research teams from within Leicestershire got together to present their research and showcase potential opportunities for members of the public to get involved in research studies.
Patient and public involvement is valuable in research and is recognised as a way of producing more effective healthcare delivery and outcomes for patients. The key to this is developing a dialogue between researchers and service users, with the common goal of improved outcomes and quality of care. This recent event provided the opportunity for stakeholders to meet research teams, from Leicestershire’s Biomedical Research Units (BRUs); Leicestershire, Northampton and Rutland (LNR) Collaborative Leadership for Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC); and the Diabetes Research Network, to gain an overview of a selection of recent or on-going
projects. The event also showcased potential opportunities for members of the public to get involved in research studies.
