Patient & Public Involvement in Research
The Research & Development Office strive to increase the opportunities for patients and their families to be informed about, and involved in, our research and research processes.
Patient and Public involvement in research referrers to an active partnership between researchers and patients and/or the public in the research process. At York we strive to actively involve patients in as many of our research projects and ideas as possible.
We have already made progress in this area by having significant lay representation on our R&D Group and organising and hosting patient focus groups to help develop our research ideas. Also, we have recently trained a small group of interested members and governors into the background of clinical research so they can now read patient facing research materials for us, and edit them to be more understandable for the public.
