We are organising a conference in Galway about involving lay people and patients as equal partners in our research. The aim is to create an environment where the voice of the lay person or patient contributes to research planning – nothing about us, without us. 

We welcome lay people, patients and members of patient and community organisations to the conference. Come along if you want to find out more. You will get the chance to hear lay people talk about their experiences of helping researchers to plan and conduct their research.

Registration is free to members of the public but online registration is now closed (noon, 26.04.2017). However, you are welcome to come along to ILAS NUI Galway at 9.30am tomorrow 27 April 2017.

Here is the conference programme:
