Join the Public Involvement in MEMO Studies (PIMS Group)
What is it?
The MEMO Public Involvement Panel will be a group of people who volunteer to help us make sure our research is acceptable, relevant, and useful to the public.
Why would you want me?
Research is a team effort and everyone brings their own unique life experiences and skills. We want to incorporate lots of different viewpoints into our research.
What would I have to do?
At first, the panel will meet face-to-face in Dundee, about 4 times per year. At these meetings, we will talk about specific aspects of our research studies that we think you can help with and you can choose which aspects most interest you. Tasks that we might ask for your help with might include:
- Telling us your views on new research proposals
- Helping us to prepare study information documents that meet patient’s needs
- Helping us to explain our research findings in a way that is easy to understand
Do I need training?
You will not need any specific training to take part in the panel. Should you be interested in further training on public involvement in research, we can arrange this.
