We involve members of the public and patients in our work. We value the contributions they make through their experiences and knowledge. The purpose of this involvement is to improve the quality and relevance of the research that we do. There are two ways we do this:
- include patients and/or relatives of patients in our study teams to ensure that our research reflects the needs and priorities of patients and their families; and
- include patients and/or relatives of patients on trial/study steering/advisory committees to provide input and advise on the conduct of our research studies to ensure the needs of study participants are met.
