Involving patients and the public

Resources to help you involve patients and the public in research

The importance of Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE)

Our experience is that patients and the public are interested in being part of and getting involved with health and social care research for a variety of reasons. Not only do they hope to benefit from more treatments, but they also want to help others who are experiencing the same condition as them.

As a health or social care professional, you have a great opportunity to encourage more patients and carers to be part of research which will improve future health care and treatment. Your relationship with patients is crucial to helping patients find their way into research.

You can find out more about Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) on the NIHR website via the link below, or you can browse our list of helpful resources on this page.
