Our approach is to strive for a meaningful and structured programme of Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement. Whilst the term ‘refers to ‘patients’, we always include people using social care services in our definition. We celebrate the range of diverse, independent, and informed viewpoints that our Group of ‘experts by experience’ members brings and we will build on this during the coming years.
The Advisory Group’s role is that of a ‘critical friend’ – to ask the questions that are important to people using health and care services and those that care for them. We work with the HSCWRU research team to ensure that the perspectives of those using health and social care services are considered throughout the lifecycle of the Unit’s work. We are involved with setting strategic direction and research priorities (where possible), study design, monitoring progress, reviewing findings, supporting dissemination, and capturing impact. Some of the PPIEAG members are part of other networks and both bring their experience of these to the Group and pass on the learning from the HSCWRU research findings.
The Advisory Group is chaired by Valerie Lipman. The Unit liaison is Research Fellow Caroline Norrie.
