Title: Involving Patients in Medical Research


Overview: Involving patients, carers and members of the public in medical research – not just as participants in clinical trials or other studies but in deciding what research is done, and how – is a growing trend. As Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for Englandsays “No matter how complicated the research, or how brilliant the researcher, patients and the public always offer unique, invaluable insights. Their advice when designing, implementing and evaluating research invariably makes studies more effective, more credible and often more cost effective. This talk, by the Oxford BRC’s first Director of Patient Involvement in Research looks at how we are turning national priorities into local action.
