13:10-14:10 EGPRN Educational Committee Lunch Workshop: "Harnessing the patient voice to improve quality and safety of care: patient and public engagement in research"

Chair: Ana Luisa Neves, Michael Harris

Patient and public involvement (PPI) is defined as “research being carried out ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them”. By ‘public’, most definitions mean patients, potential patients, carers and people who use health and social care services. PPIE is about harnessing the patient voice, making sure the right research is done and challenging wasteful or unnecessary research, suggesting different research questions or priorities, raising the profile of particular diseases or symptoms - and, most importantly, helping medical researchers understand what outcomes matter most to patients. With the advent of the new technologies, patients are more and more engaged on their healthcare, and start taking an active role in the definition of research priorities that can better contribute to the quality and safety of the care that they receive. Therefore, the development of strategies to improve patient involvement have emerged as a key priority in medical research.

In this workshop we will revisit examples of public engagement in research, and explore practical opportunities and challenges of involving patients in research. We will also discuss the implications of the new policies on patient involvement on publishing activities, using the example of BMJ that from 2018 onwards requires a PPI statement for all its submissions.
