Inclusive Involvement in Research for Practice Led Health and Social Care

Research on health and social care should involve patients, service users, carers and members of the public with different experiences.

The Inclusive Involvement in Research for Practice Led Health and Social Care theme aims to find the best ways of doing this. We want to work inclusively with people in communities and will work together (“co-design”) with the public – to design, carry out, share and implement research findings.

Our team includes:

  • members from community
  • service user led and voluntary groups
  • universities who will build on CLAHRC EoE Patient and Public Involvement theme work

We aim to:

  • identify research topics and use methods that will be of wide interest and relevant to people from East of England communities, other regions and nationally.
