The first conference was held in October 2011 and provided an opportunity to explore the educational implications of implementing patient and public involvement and engagement. We discussed many main central themes during the conference, download the summary of the 2011 conference (opens in new window, PDF 133KB) to find out more.
Over the past year we have been in touch with many colleagues up and down the country who are exploring similar ideas which focus on the design and delivery of educational programmes for patients and service users and their organisations. We are excited by the diversity of activity both within the formal HE sector, as well as in the community, and healthcare workplaces.
The event was an opportunity to continue conversations on teaching, learning and research all of which will contribute to advancing our understanding of the discipline of PPI and Engagement. With the passing of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, we face a future in which there will be opportunities and challenges. We hope you share our vision that PPI is a collaborative enterprise in which we are all creatively involved.
