Public Advisory Group Member
Being part of the public advisory group is a fantastic opportunity for me to share my insights as an ethnic minority, and the fact that my experiences and opinions will help shape the policy for social health care is a very rewarding experience. I highly recommend it!
The NIHR Innovation Observatory Public Advisory Group (PAG) play a key role in our patient and public involvement, engagement (PPIE) and outreach. The PAG guide strategic and operational aspects of PPIE and outreach. Operational aspects include, for example, advising on how best to strengthen involvement by patients, service users, carers, community organisations and the wider public in horizon scanning projects or planning appropriate training for PPIE and outreach team members. Strategic aspects include, for example, taking an overview of the PPIE and outreach activities occurring across research programmes, to ensure we deliver against our ambitious co-produced PPIE Strategy.
