Event details

This event is part of a series of webinars and sessions organised by the Coventry Health Determinants Research Collaboration, of which Coventry University is a collaborator. The aim is to equip local residents, voluntary sector members and council personnel with the necessary skills to conduct independent research projects and demonstrate the potential benefits for their community.

In this session, Nikki Holliday will discuss:

  • What is public involvement?
  • Why is involving the public integral to good research?
  • How does research and practice benefit from public involvement?
  • What can good public involvement in research look like?
