Public Advisory Group Member
Participating in research is so enlightening and interesting. I love being able to see change and help contribute to it too, especially for topics affecting me and my community!
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.
