Public involvement

GP and patient

We actively involve people affected by dying, death and bereavement in the design and delivery of our research studies.

By sharing their personal experiences with us, members of the public help to ensure that our research is relevant to people’s needs and concerns, and that it is designed and conducted for maximum impact, directly improving the care and experience of patients and their loved ones. The public also make valuable contributions to our long-term research plans and interests, through involvement in strategic groups and discussions.

We are committed to supporting public involvement in our research and sharing what we have learned in line with the UK Standards for Public Involvement. We have recently developed and launched the Public Involvement in Research Impact Toolkit (PIRIT). We’ve made it freely accessible to support improvements in broader public involvement practice.
