Shared Learning Group on Involvement

Meeting Held 1 February, 2018

Some really interesting discussion about co-production, with input from Michael Turner (SCIE) and Gary Hickey (INVOLVE). We also talked about payment for involvement, plans to develop an e-learning package for staff about involvement, and made plans for our meetings in 2018/19.

Shared Learning Group on Involvement in Research

Meeting Held 15 December, 2017

The main discussion item at this meeting was how we can promote and increase diversity amongst the people we involve. Thanks to Shehla Javed at Cancer Research UK for sharing her experience.  We also heard about progress to support involvement at the Stroke Association, amongst Irish charities and in pharma. And we made plans to take forward our thinking about capturing and assessing the impact of involvement.
