Including Patient and Public Involvement in Funding Applications


Are you applying for grant funding from a major funder or charity?  Do you want to work with patients and the public on your grant application but aren’t sure how or aren’t sure how to evidence it? In this course, we will explore what grant funders’ requirements are in terms of PPI, when you should be seeking patient and public input and how and where to include PPI in the grant application. 

Bring along a current application you are working on or a future research idea you intend to seek funding for and develop your PPI plan for your grant application.
