The conference will:

  • Allow PPI contributors, both those new to PPI and those with experience of PPI, an opportunity for some online “networking”
  • Explore some innovative PPI approaches
  • Showcase the award winners of the inaugural PPI Excellence in Research awards at NUI Galway
  • Provoke reflection, discussion and debate on PPI

The theme for this year’s conference is “PPI- Creating the New Normal in Research”, celebrating the successful integration of PPI into research in recent years – and also pointing out the work that remains to be done.

We warmly invite members of the public, patients, and carers to tune into the sixth national Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) in Research conference. If you have any questions in advance of the conference, please contact us at info@primarycaretrials.ie
