Tips sheet: Recruiting members of the public to get involved in research funding and commissioning processes
March 2012. Produced by INVOLVE and members of the Public Involvement Collaboration Group
This tips sheet aims to offer some practical advice for people who are planning to recruit members of the public to patient and public involvement roles in research funding and commissioning processes, such as reviewing research funding applications or being members of research advisory panels and boards.
The tips sheet has been produced by INVOLVE working with members of the Public Involvement Collaboration Group. This Group is facilitated by INVOLVE and brings together the patient and public involvement leads of many of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) programmes and others, to work on research funding and commissioning issues of common interest, and to share knowledge, resources and good practice.
These tips consolidate knowledge and lessons learned by members of the Public Involvement Collaboration Group. They are largely based on the development of recruitment processes within the NIHR research programmes and are not intended to provide a comprehensive guide to recruitment.
