Stage 7: Analysing and Interpreting

Some public contributors may wish an active hands-on approach to analysis and interpretation. If they can be suitably trained and supported to do so and if ethical bodies have approved their involvement e.g. access to data. Steps to make data more accessible may need to be taken e.g. asking their views on poignant or problematic chunks of data or inviting them to verify emerging findings identified by the research team. When verifying findings or identifying gaps or new perspectives in analyses, workshop type events often work well or individual work at home to be later shared as a group. Discuss and agree study recommendations with public contributors and areas for further research.
