Abstract: Aim: To assess whether the Public Involvement Impact Assessment Framework (PiiAF) is a useful resource to support research teams to assess the impact of public involvement. Method: The team took notes during meetings as they worked through the PiiAF resource, in order to develop their plan to assess the impact of public involvement in their university-based mental health research centre. They reflected on their experience and share their learning. Results: The authors highlight the amount of time and effort required to develop an effective PI impact assessment plan. They conclude that PiiAF is flexible enough to be used in a range of contexts and stress the importance of involving all stakeholders (including the public) in developing an involvement assessment plan.
