The free half-day workshop 'Setting up and running a patient group for PPI in biomedical research' aims to be practical and realistic in its approach. Researchers are encouraged to work through their own plans for PPI.
Topics covered include:
The workshop will be led by Bec Hanley of TwoCan Associates and Derek Stewart of Rime and Reason.
