This award recognises research and improvement teams who can demonstrate how they have worked with patients, services users, carers, families and communities to ensure that those on the receiving end of research and care influence the process and the end results.
This award is open to applied health research and improvement teams who can demonstrate a direct connection with the London CLAHRC programmes for example through being funded or affiliated, or subject to scrutiny in the CLAHRC governance structures.
Before entering, read and consider the following success criteria carefully
What the judging panel will be looking for:
1. Activity that has been designed and delivered with the input of patients and carers from as an early stage as possible
2. Attempts to involve and engage people who are less likely to be heard but have much to say for example children and young people, those with learning difficulties or sensory impairments and people from minority communities including carers
3. Reflection and a desire to improve the practice of patient and carer involvement moving it away from a tick-box exercise to a two-way learning process
