Public Engagement at Manchester

Patient Hack Day – September 30 2015

Registration is now open for the second Hack Day which will be taking place on September 30 2015. 

Once again, we’ll be inviting patients, carers, service users or members of the public to pitch their own idea for a research project. The pitchers will then work in groups with other public collaborators and also with researchers and representatives from voluntary organisations to try to translate these ideas into early-stage research proposals.

The Patient Hack 2015 pdf has more info about the venue, what the day involves and how to take part.

This year, we’re specifically inviting pitches around three themes – Mental Health, Technology & Health, and Patient Safety. This is because these are areas of expertise in Manchester which means researchers/ voluntary organisation representatives with relevant experience can be invited to attend.

As with last year’s event, we are inviting 30 public contributors and 30 researchers/ voluntary organisation representatives, and places are available on a first come, first served basis. Public contributors will receive a reimbursement for travel expenses (up to a max of £30) and an attendance fee (£40).

The registration page can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/56LLKSH

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,
Claire and The Hack Day Team.

INVITE: Public Engagement/Patient and Public Involvement in Research – practice sharing and innovations event

We are pleased to invite you to a free half day event, provided in partnership Salford R&D and the North West People in Research Forum.

This event will provide an opportunity for those involved in leading/developing PPI (patient and public involvement) and PE (public engagement) in research to meet others with an interest in this area; with the aim of building new partnerships and strengthening existing ones.

It will be a chance to share experiences, best practice and explore innovative ways that PE/PPI in research can be delivered.

The event will be followed by an opportunity to network, with a light lunch provided.

If you are interested in attending, you can book your place now via our EventBrite page.
