The National Institute for Health Research are asking for comments and ideas on some draft standards for involving people in research.
Help us improve draft national standards for public involvement in research
Invitation to review and improve draft national standards for public involvement in research
Consultation: draft national standards for public involvement in research
During 2016/17, Health and Care Research Wales, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Chief Scientist Office in Scotland and the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland have been working with public contributors as the ‘Public Involvement Standards Development Partnership’. The Partnership is developing a set of national, core standards and indicators for public involvement (PI) in research that can be used by organisations, research projects and individuals to improve the quality and consistency of PI.
Here is a summary of the steps we have taken so far and our plans for future work.
As you can see, we would now like to involve you in reviewing and giving us feedback on the draft standards and indicators. Do they capture what good public involvement in research looks like from your perspective? Will they be of practical use to you? What have we missed out? How can we improve them?
The consultation is running from 29th June 2017 to 1st September 2017. Please visit the project website for more detailed information about the consultation process and to access all the resources you might need:
If you have any questions or queries about the consultation please contact the PPI team at the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility:
