BMedSci PPI Module
September 2018 saw the launch of a new Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) module for BMedSci students.
This optional module introduces second-year medical students to Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) across the research life cycle, its importance in good research and the benefits gained from a patient perspective. The module was co-produced and co-delivered by staff from the School of Medicine, NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), and members of the public, all part of the East Midlands Sharebank network.
Alongside the diverse team of academics and patient representatives, I contributed to the development of new syllabus. Collaborating with PPI reps Michael and Julie we co-produced and delivered a workshop for the module on ‘Considerations for delivering meaningful research’.
We presented our experiences in co-producing and co-delivering the module at 2019’s UKCRF Annual Conference in Nottingham.
I deliver PPI workshop lectures at Grant Writing Training for Schoo of Medicine researchers, I also co-deliver the complete BMedSci module as a one-day training course to staff and research students in School of Medicine, School of Life Sciences and Nottingham University Hospital.
I have also delivered statistics teaching on FRCS (T&O) Programme, and quantitative research methods to MSc Medical Education students.
