    About the event

    Are you a researcher, health or social care professional, post-graduate student or public contributor in health and social care? Are you interested in developing your understanding of how considering health inequalities and diversity and inclusion in public involvement, can help in your work?

    In this, the second of two NIHR North West events, we will focus on learning from case studies across the North West where diverse and inclusive approaches to patient and public involvement have been employed. We will also consider how to take health inequalities into account when involving patients and the public.

    The event is being organised collaboratively by NIHR Research Design Service North West, NIHR INVOLVE and the Public Programmes Team at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and  NIHR CLAHRC NW Coast.

     

    Event objectives

    1. To provide attendees with insight into national strategic priorities around diversity and inclusion in patient and public involvement in research.
    2. To showcase work being undertaken in the North West on diversity and inclusion in patient and public involvement in research.
    3. To provide opportunities for shared learning on diversity and inclusion in patient and public involvement in research e.g. to understand the key challenges and showcase facilitators in this area of work.
    4. To provide attendees with the opportunity to explore if and how they can use the Health Inequalities Impact Tool in their work involving patients and the public in research.
