Abstract: It is more difficult to see where patient and public involvement can add value to basic research and pre-clinical research than for clinical trials. Basic/ pre-clinical researchers were invited to a discussion group to discuss their views of the key challenges of implementing public and patient involvement. In response, the authors of this article developed a tool to help researchers plan involvement. They also developed a short questionnaire that can be used to find out how well the involvement is working, which asks involved patients/ members of the public to evaluate the involvement from their perspective.
