I am the Musculoskeletal Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Lead having developed and recruited a new Musculoskeletal (MSK) patient advisory group providing support for ARUK Pain Centre, ARUK Centre for Sport Exercise and Osteoarthritis MRC ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research and NIHR Nottingham BRC MSK theme.
As well as providing support to researchers alongside liaising with PPI representatives I am involved in various PPI training. I was involved in designing and delivering the new medical degree (BMedSci) undergraduate module on Patient and public involvement in research (started Autumn 2018). This module is also offered as a one-day training course for staff and research students at the University of Nottingham and NUH trust. I am also delivering PPI workshop lectures this year at the Grant Writing Training course for School of Medicine researchers.
In addition, I am the MSK representative for East Midlands Sharebank, which provides reciprocal PPI training across the East Midlands
