Earlier this year, INVOLVE hosted an invoNET round table discussion to look at the evidence base for the impact of public involvement in research and consider how it should be developed in the future. The round table was chaired by Patricia Wilson and brought together researchers, service user researchers and service users with expertise in this area.
A report summarising the main points of the round table discussion has just been published on the INVOLVE website (click here to view or download). It includes sections on evidencing the impact, assessing the impact, capturing the evidence of impact and the future of the evidence of impact. The website also includes the biographies of each of the members of the round table and their reflections following the discussion (click here).
We are currently reviewing this area of the website so have disabled it until the review is completed.
This article, which was published in the INVOLVE Summer 2013 newsletter, presents a summary of discussions from the invoNET sponsored workshop at the INVOLVE 2012 Conference.
