Definition of terms

Some of the words and names used in research can be confusing. We have worked with a panel of researchers and a panel of service users to develop a jargon buster and glossary of words. It contains the definitions of some of the terms commonly used in public involvement in research and explanations of the acronyms that are often used. It is not a complete list of all the words you might come across, but we are adding to them all of the time.
