UCD PPI Shared Learning Group

Public & Patient Involvement (PPI) in research is increasingly becoming a requirement of health & social care research. The UCD PPI Shared Learning Group is aimed at informally sharing our knowledge and experiences of PPI so that we can all improve our research involvement practices.

This shared learning network is open to all UCD researchers & research students. People with all levels of PPI experience are welcome, including those yet to start with PPI.

Meetings typically happen on the second Thursday of the month.
