Latest Meeting Summaries

Shared Learning Group on Involvement

Meeting Held 9 December, 2021

Lots of really interesting experiences shared about keeping people involved at this meeting. And about running face-to-face and hybrid involvement meetings when COVID restrictions had lifted. We also looked at results of our benchmarking exercise. Which were really encouraging, despite the impact of COVID – for example more member charities involved in co-production, and more actively trying to improve the diversity of the people involved.

Charities Research Involvement Group

Meeting Held 14 December, 2021

Some great presentations from Blood Cancer UK and Epilepsy Research UK about PPI in strategic decision making in relation to research. We also welcomed Edel Murphy from PPI Ignite, the new national organisation to support PPI in research in Ireland. And there were lots of interesting questions raised and addressed by members.
