Building partnerships through creativity and justice

A 3 day in person Summer School in Exeter with a range of expert speakers

Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) in research has never been more recognised and important in health and care research. It’s important for people to have a say in publicly funded research and be given the opportunity to make decisions, shape, and learn about research which might affect them; to work with research in a way that is done ‘for’ or ‘with’ them, rather than ‘to’ or ‘about’ them. Public involvement in research can make research stronger and more relevant.

For the second year, a team of experts, including our PPIE lead Dr Kristin Liabo, have developed an informative and thought-provoking summer school designed for anyone with an interest in PPIE and embedding patient and public involvement in their work and research. First held in 2023, it will be relevant to health and care researchers and people in PPIE co-ordinator/facilitator roles in both health and care services and academic institutions.

The summer school represents an opportunity to, ‘go beyond the numbers and rhetoric and explore innovative and honest ways of generating and disseminating knowledge and foster uptake by building constructive and creative relationships.’
