The Role of the Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Lead
On 24th November, Jo and two RDS SW public contributors, Heather and Gail, contributed to a national RDS webinar on “The role of the PPI Lead and the Public Co-applicant in Health and Care Research”. Jo and Heather co-presented on the role of the PPI Lead with Gail supporting Saumu Lwembe (Assistant Director for Public Involvement with the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility) with a presentation on “What does a funding committee look for?” Jo, Heather and Gail also joined the panel for the Q&A session.
The webinar had 169 attendees and generated a lot of quite challenging questions. Unfortunately, Teams gremlins prevented full recording, but the audio was recorded and is currently being overlaid with the slide presentations for circulation. We will provide the link for this as soon as it is available. The “Chat” and panel questions will be also answered in writing by the panel for circulation. The RDS team will be looking to develop follow up workshops for the New Year.
