Public & Patient Involvement in Ireland  – A Guide for Not-For-Profit and Community Groups New to Research

For the past three years, Care Alliance Ireland has been pleased to be part of a collaborative project with the University of Limerick and other partners on the topic of Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) in Health Research, funded by the Health Research Board. As part of our work on the project, we led the development of a guide for not-for-profit groups new to research, which was launched in February 2021.

The guide is available on our website at Topics covered are;

  • What is PPI?
  • What are the stages of research?
  • What can PPI contribute to your organisation?
  • What can your organisation contribute to research?
  • So your organisation has been approached by a researcher – what next?
  • Challenges faced by PPI researchers
  • Resources for organisations
  • Glossary of PPI terms

We look forward to continuing our collaboration with UL as the PPI Ignite project moves into the next phase of work at a national level.
