Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)

Patient and Public Involvement

In research, services development.

Effective Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is working in partnership, effectively and respectfully to achieve goals and joint decisions.  Crowe Associates understand the challenges of PPI, and the ‘extra mile’ that is needed for effective patient/public involvement. Our partners have included:

  • Warwick University
  • Bucks County Council
  • Birmingham University
  • Prostate Cancer Alliance
  • Minervation
  • Royal College of Nursing Institute
  • Skills for Care (Oxfordshire, Bucks and Milton Keynes)
  • James Lind Alliance
  • Quality Milton Keynes
  • International Pelvic Pain Partnership
  • Glasgow Caledonian University
  • MS Society
  • Association for Young people with ME (AYME)

Our partnership projects tend to be long term (1 – 2 years), or one off workshops and seminars.  We have helped service delivery organisations undertake effective consultations, run productive meetings and workshops and worked with staff on their attitudes to and skills for involvement.  We also work with research groups on effective strategies for patient and public involvement in all aspects of research design and process.
