Latest Meeting Summaries

Shared Learning Group on Involvement

Meeting Held 3 October, 2017

A great meeting – really useful presentation and discussions about the key ingredients to support a successful panel, network or group of patients, service users and carers. We learned about Mind’s new influence and participation toolkit. We also looked at what would help us to promote more diversity among the people we involve – the diversity working group will be doing more work on this.

Shared Learning Group on Involvement in Research

Meeting Held 4 October, 2017

We focused on supporting researchers to involve people, and heard about Arthritis Research UK’s PPI fund for researchers and CRUK’s involvement toolkit. We made plans to update the Group’s template to enable members to train researchers and to develop a web resources so that researchers can contact us about involvement requests. We also talked about how we could influence pharma to involve people more – a workshop and  a meeting are being planned.
