Implementation of Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) in research on a national level always represents a balance between a top down and a bottom up approach. The introduction of PPI in Denmark has been regularly monitored over the last decade. In this video, originally part of the Cochrane Learning Live and International PPI Network series, the challenges and opportunities of top down vs bottom up approaches is discussed. This includes shared learning, training of young researchers, and different contexts for PPI (e.g. clinical intervention, rehabilitation, prevention & epidemiology). Public, patients', relatives' and carers' attitudes to PPI are also considered, taking into account cultural contexts.
This video will be particularly useful to those in the process of introducing PPI into an organisation (in a national context or a wider area), or are planning to in the future. If you are responsible for developing a programme for PPI to engage researchers or the public, this session is for you.
The webinar was delivered in February 2020 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with accompanying slides to download [PDF].
