Public and patient involvement
We work closely with study participants and the public to make sure our interventions are as effective, safe and well-designed as they can be.
Without the generous support of the public, we would not be able to carry out the high impact research that we do. The Centre is entirely dependent on recruiting and retaining motivated members of the public who wish to contribute to a healthier society and nation.
This involves not only providing all required support to them during studies and trials, involving patients in trial design where possible, but also every participant's peace of mind that they are protected by appropriate data protection and data handling policies.
Public Involvement and Engagement Hub
A core of our public and patient inolvement strategy is the Centre for Trials Research Public Involvement and Engagement Hub. This is a team including members of the public and researchers. It forms the core of our commitment to involve members of the public and patients in research, and encourages engagement and dissemination of all study results as clearly, widely and transparently as possible.
Our portfolio of work includes drugs trials and complex interventions, mechanisms of disease and treatments, cohort studies and informing policy and practice.
