Patient and Public Involvement
Trent Comprehensive Local Research Network is committed to actively and meaningfully involving and engaging patients and the public to help shape, manage, disseminate and promote research locally.
Why? Patient and public involvement and engagement (PPI/E) helps to make research more relevant, credible, cost effective and accessible to our patients. PPI/E can help to increase awareness about, and patient participation in, research. PPI/E can therefore help to make studies more successful to the benefit of those who matter most – the patients.
If you would like to know more about Trent CLRN PPI/E activities and/or would like to get involved please contact our PPI/E FacilitatorYou can also explore the links below to access more information about PPI/E and contacts in the region.
