We have a dedicated training programme for our patient and public involvement and engagement strategy group, co-developed with our PPIE group.
Using a range of both internal and external facilitators and experts we are able to offer options to meet the flexible needs of our group.
Our PPIE strategy group also participate in each of our staff away days and priority setting workshops, ensuring they are embedded in the unit.
We plan to expand our training to include members of other NIHR Policy Research Units and welcome partnership working.
Some of our previous offerings include:
- Partnership Working
- Systematic Reviewing
- Policy Process
- Presentation Skills – how to write a presentation
- Presentation Skills – training on voice projection, stage presence and confidence
- Writing for a lay audience – delivered by our public lead
