What is Patient and Public Involvement?

Patient and public involvement is when members of the public are actively involved in research projects and organisations. Researchers and patients/members of the public work together to design, carry out and report on research. This means patients are members of the research team as colleagues who bring their expertise based on experience of illness and treatment.
