Sheffield Evidence Synthesis Centre
Public and patient involvement (PPI)
Members of the public are closely involved with the work of the Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Evidence Synthesis Team. We have a public representative co-applicant, and public panels which help and advise us throughout all stages of each project. We work with networks of voluntary and community groups who offer expertise for particular topics.
The public are involved in roles including helping the research teams to shape the research questions, adding knowledge to help understanding of what the findings mean, giving advice on sharing the findings, and contributing to production of materials to ensure understanding of the findings amongst the wider community.
