Are you a researcher?
This patient and public involvement panel is made up of both Stroke survivors and members of their support network, and is currently meeting online once a month via Microsoft Teams on Mondays from 11am - 12noon.
If you are interested in bringing your research ideas, study documents, grant applications or approved projects to us for discussion and feedback, please contact Jo Burke to book a session via firstname.lastname@example.org
Each meeting has capacity for 2 research projects, and then a final session to discuss ongoing work & collaboration opportunities.
Any presentation materials or feedback documents you provide that are not under review need to be aphasia friendly/in an appropriately accessible format for this patient group. Please follow the Stroke Association Accessible Information Guidelines available here: accessible_information_guidelines.pdf1_.pdf (stroke.org.uk) and/or contact the panel coordinator for further support.
The facilitator/panel aim to follow best practice for online meetings with participants with communication and cognitive difficulties (our group advice sheet is available on request)
The session works best when presentation time is limited so that half/one third of the time is available for discussion.
The service is free to Sheffield researchers. If you would like to use the panel for extended/repeated PPIE involvement, you should explore further funding options including: https://www.rds-yh.nihr.ac.uk/public-involvement/rds-yh-public-involvement-fund/
