Patient and Public Involvement
Involve - Supporting public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research
INVOLVE is a national advisory group which supports greater public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research. INVOLVE is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
INVOLVE works with others towards creating the research community of the future which will be broader, more inclusive and more representative of the population as a whole.
Members of the public bring perspectives and skills that are not always the same as those of researchers and health and social care professionals. Their involvement helps to ensure that the entire research process is focused on what is important to people and is therefore more relevant and acceptable to the users of services.
People in Research - Opportunities for public involvement in clinical research
People in Research is a UK Clinical Research Collaboration project led by one of its Partner organisations, INVOLVE. INVOLVE is responsible for the day-to-day management of People in Research.
INVOLVE is a national advisory group that is funded by the National Institute for Health Research. It was established to promote and support active public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research in order to improve the way that research is prioritised, commissioned, undertaken, communicated and used.
INVOLVE believes that the active involvement of the public in the research process leads to research that is more relevant to people and is more likely to be used. Research which reflects the needs and views of the public, is more likely to produce results that can be used to improve practice in health and social care.
