Opening the workshop, Dr Ruth Davis Director of 3U Partnership, welcomed delegates, noting that “The importance of Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) in research has been highlighted by many funding agencies and organisations and increasingly, researchers are required to incorporate PPI into their work".

3U Innovediate Workshop: Communication Skills for Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) in Research

3U Innovediate is hosting a one day practical workshop focused on developing effective communication strategies for researchers in the 3U Partner Institutions who wish to engage the public and patients as active stakeholders in their research.


What is Public and Patient Involvement?

Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) is when individuals meaningfully and actively collaborate in the governance, priority setting, and conduct of research, as well as in summarising, distributing, sharing, and applying its resulting knowledge. The importance of PPI in research has been highlighted by many of the funding agencies including, the European Commission Framework funding, HRB and SFI.

PPI can lead not only to treatments that better meet patient’s needs and are more likely to be put into practice, but also to changes in the Government priorities and in funding policies. PPI demands new communication skills from researchers that enable them to create a dialogue with patients and the public so that their inputs can be fully represented in addressing the research challenges.

The 3U Innovediate workshop is aimed at developing relevant communication skills for researchers of any discipline who already, or who are seeking to, involve the public and patients in their research. The 3U Innovediate workshop aims to give researchers the tools to develop this engagement innovatively and effectively.

Who should attend?

This topic is of obvious interest to biomedical and clinical researchers but researchers from any discipline whose work affects patients and public and their health management will also benefit.

Professionalism across the Professions took place on the 22 May 2017 in the Law Society of Ireland.
In a new era of “alternative facts”, public scandals and an increased distrust of traditional symbols of authority, it is not hard to justify a renewed focus on the value of Professionalism in our society. While few would argue the need to be “professional” in one’s work, the concept itself is not well understood either conceptually or methodologically.

Professionalism is pivotal to the relationship between the public and the professional, but there are a variety of diverse perspectives for interpreting what professionalism means in practice. Through this Forum, “Professionalism across the Professions”, we aim to explore the attitudes, behaviours, and characteristics that contribute to the concept of Professionalism in our society.

3U Partnership and the Law Society of Ireland recognize that all professions, not only the legal, medical and academic professions, are expected by a multitude of stakeholders to consistently demonstrate “professional behaviour” throughout their working life. Whilst this Forum will focus on the medical, legal and academic sectors, it will be of interest to participants from any professional sector.
