The trouble with patient and public involvement (PPI)

Keynote speaker: Jennifer Johannesen

Synoposis:  As enthusiasm for PPI (Patient and Public Involvement) in health research increases, the tensions and conflicts experienced by both patients and researchers also become amplified. In this session, Jennifer examines some of PPI’s problems by considering fundamental questions such as what is happening, why is it happening, and who is benefiting? Although it may feel uncomfortable, answering these questions may lead to a better understanding of why PPI’s contradictions are difficult to resolve.  

There will be a 90 minute moderated discussion following on from Jennifer's talk in which attendees will have an opportunity to further explore the ideas presented by Jennifer in the opening keynote.  All are welcome to join this challenging and lively discussion.
