Managing Difficult Situations in Patient and Public Involvement, UK, Friday, 01. March 2019

Please note that this is an invite only event.
Meaningful patient and public involvement work relies on partnerships between University staff and public contributors working collaboratively to develop research and teaching.
Occasionally and inevitably there are times when partnership working becomes challenging, for any number of reasons. When such issues arise they can have an impact on public contributors, staff and organisations, yet this very important aspect of patient and public involvement is rarely acknowledged or discussed in an open forum
This session aims to provide a safe and supportive environment in which those participating in public involvement work, in any role, can discuss these challenges and work together to develop principles which ensure that everyone feels supported in their public involvement work.
Who is the workshop aimed at?
·      Members of patient and public involvement groups based at the Patient Safety Translational Research Centres
·      Patient Safety Translational Research Centre researchers with experience of patient and public involvement/ co-production
Format: We will explore the types of challenging situations that can arise in patient and public involvement work using scenarios that are based on experience.
Expenses: Public contributors will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses on the day and will receive £100 as a thank you for their input.
Outcomes: The event will lead to a better understanding of the challenges that can arise and how these can be prevented from occurring or well managed when they do.
A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The University of Manchester was the first University in the UK to make social responsibility (the process of acting for the benefit of society at large) one of its strategic goals. Involving the public in research and teaching is an important way in which we meet our ambitious social responsibility objectives. The discussions we have in this session will help to underpin our future collaborative work ensuring that we continue to work towards achieving outstanding patient and public involvement for world class research and teaching.
