One thought on “Public engagement in research must break through its rose-tinted glass ceiling #engage_2015

  1. You are right but NIHR appear to have disinvested in supporting public engagement and active involvement in the restructure and race to the bottom line on staffing costs. They should be leading the way. It should also be an absolute fundamental that the Netwoejs build effective links with PPI, Comms. engagement, patient experience and equalities staff in provider organisations. Does this happen? In some places I think maybe it does but it just does not happen where I work at all! This is not just my opinion I had this discussion with research colleagues just yesterday. The Grand Canyon seems easier to bridge than the gap between the research world and service provides – where the patients are and most of the research happens! Why? What will it take to change this?
