Guidance for payment for Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement

This guidance has been compiled for a wide audience, but in particular it will be of value to:

  • researchers who need to cost public involvement activities at any stage of the research process
  • anyone in a professional role involved in costing public involvement, advising researchers on budgeting for involvement or who has an interest in the topic
  • public contributors who want to know how their involvement in research is costed
  • research advisors/managers who provide guidance to the research community about involvement
  • commissioners of research who invite funding applications from the research community
  • reviewers and panel members who appraise research projects with costed involvement activities

NIHR has developed a separate guidance document aimed at public contributors.

A recording of a webinar on the guidance is available here.

You can access the slides from the webinar here.
