Date unveiled for PPIE spring meeting 2022
Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) professionals and representatives from the Midlands are once again coming together to share ideas and best practice at an upcoming virtual event.
The Midlands Health Alliance, an organisation which works to ensure and promote the Midlands delivery of high-quality health research, is hosting the event and is set to unveil the full agenda for its three-day meeting in the coming weeks.
Entitled ‘Advancing PPIE in the Midlands: Sharing Best Practice’, the online event will be held from Wednesday, May 11 until Friday, May 13.
Keynote speaker Jeremy Taylor, Director for Public Voice at the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR), will present an overview of how the NIHR ensures that public engagement is covered in health care research. During his talk, he will present the latest NIHR developments concerning engagement between the research world and communities. At the end of his session, attendees will have the opportunity to ask Jeremey questions in a Q&A session.
Following the success of the first Midlands wide PPIE event in 2021, the event will return this year, once again bringing together PPIE professionals and representatives to showcase how PPIE is advancing in the region and to share best practice in this area. Each session will conclude with a question and answer session so that attendees are able to get involved with the event and have their questions answered.
If you are a PPIE professional, representative, health researcher or if you just have an interest in PPIE and want to learn more or potentially get involved in the future, this event is for you.
