Public involvement training course for service users and carers

Public involvement training course for service users and carers

NIHR CLAHRC YH has developed a Public Involvement training course for service users and carers.

This training is a two-day course, run about a month apart, that aims to give a general overview of public involvement in research and then be a hands-on practical introduction to the types of involvement that are common in NIHR CLAHRC YH. 

The training was developed with lay members, as part of our Diabetes in Severe Mental Illness (DIAMONDs) work in our Mental Health and Comorbidity Theme.  We are planning to run this course four times over the next year, and we are working with a University of Huddersfield team, including lay members, to evaluate the course.

It is currently open to our CLAHRC partner organisations in Yorkshire and Humber.  Each day runs from 10am till 3pm and includes lunch and travel expenses.
