Public and Patient Involvement at UCD

Both nationally and internationally, there continues to be a significant emphasis in the literature on advancing our understanding of what public and patient involvement (PPI) is within health and social care. The UCD PPI Ignite team was successful in receiving funding from the Health Research Board  to embed PPI in a variety of different ways across UCD. Our working PPI definition stems from the UK National Institute for Health Research advisory group INVOLVE as “research being carried out “with” or “by” members of the public rather than “to,” “about” or “for” them”.  One specific focus of our program is to overcome the often-identified challenges as noted by UCD researchers and within the literature of engaging ‘seldom heard’ groups. There is a diversity of PPI activities occurring across UCD, involving a breadth of PPI groups. Our program of work in UCD PPI Ignite  involves internal and external partners focused on three key enablers:

1. Research 2. Capacity & Capability 3. Knowledge Mobilisation and Network Formation.
