How to Plan for PPI

PPI is bespoke. There is no standard formula for a good PPI initiative. Good planning is a critical step for successful PPI. You need to consider how to partner with the right people, in the right way throughout your research journey. Remember, PPI partners' influence and interest may vary during your project and therefore different approaches will be appropriate at different stages. 

PPI Planning Canvas

To help prepare for PPI, we have developed the PPI Planning Canvas.

Based on the (opens in a new window)PPI Ready Researcher Planning Canvas, our planning tool helps you to reflect and consider the main theoretical challenges for implementing PPI. 

It is designed to assist researchers and PPI contributors in making a strategic, considered plan for involvement throughout all stages of research. it can be used iteratively as the research progresses.
