The national Danish FORSK2025 strategy has underlined the value of public and patient involvement in research. The European Union recommends this approach e.g. in the eHealth Task Force Report (2012), and some of the major research foundations have started requesting it in grant applications.
A strong interest for the potential in Patient Public Involvement in Research is sweeping over researchers, politicians, policy makers, public agencies ect. in Denmark. But what is the key difference between this approach and the way patients and users have previously participated in research? Why should we - quantitative as well as qualitative researchers - get involved – and how do we get started?
This full day workshop will bring together senior and junior researchers from different research fields and others with an interest in patient involvement in research to discuss the impact, challenges and experiences related to designing and conducting research inspired by or based on this approach
