Resources for PPI
Standards for Public Involvement
The UK Standards for Public Involvement in Research will help guide you to improve the quality and consistency of the public involvement in your research.
Guidance for researchers on PPI
NIHR has developed guidance for researchers on how patients and the public can be involved.
Payment and recognition for PPI
NIHR also provide guidance on reward and payment for involvement.
Also you can find NIHR guidance on co-producing a research project.
Providing feedback to public contributors
Useful, practical and evidence-based guidance is available on providing effective two-way feedback between researchers and public contributors.
Online Public Reviewing Course
You may find the online interactive course for patient/public reviewers useful when considering how to design the PPI in your project. It will describe how patient and public reviewers and public committee members assess research plans.
Resources for evaluating the impact and reporting of PPI
In Stage 2 applications, you will be asked to describe how you will record and evaluate the impact PPI has on the research. The level of evaluation should be proportionate to the level and complexity of the proposed PPI activities. The following resources provide different frameworks for assessing impact and reporting PPI:
Evaluating public involvement in research
Guidance on evaluating PPI in research.
Assessing impact of PPI in research
The Public Involvement Impact Assessment Framework (PiiAF) has been produced to help researchers assess the impacts of involving public members in their research.
Reporting of PPI
GRIPP2 reporting checklists (tools to improve reporting of PPI in research).
