Find out more about getting involved in research

24th August 2015

A leading centre for heart research is looking for more heart patients, family members and the general public to get involved.

The centre, at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, is holding a special workshop in November so people can find out more about getting involved in research and where to start. Researchers are also being invited so they can find out more about getting people involved in their research.

The building research partnerships workshop is being held by the National Institute for Health Research’s Royal Brompton cardiovascular and respiratory biomedical research units and Macmillan.

The event is on Friday, 6 November, 10.30am to 3pm in the education centre, the respiratory clinical research facility in the Fulham Wing of the Royal Brompton Hospital, off the Fulham Road.

A spokesman for the hospital said: “This free workshop will look at how patients, carers and the public can get involved to help create the best research for patients. We will outline the different types of research methods and terms used in research as well as exploring the issues related to becoming and being a member of the public involved in research.

Those who attend will get an understanding of what it means to be involved in research and how patients, carers and the public can be involved at each stage of the research cycle
