The Public Information Pack was developed with the help of an advisory group, which included two members of the public with experience of public involvement in research. In addition, 16 members of the public with a wide range of knowledge and experience of public involvement in research participated in a workshop. The workshop identified the main topics and sub-topics to be included in the information pack. Subsequently, workshop participants commented on draft copies of different chapters of the pack. The pack is made up of four booklets and is written for members of the public who are interested in getting involved in research. The booklets cover the kind of information people need when first getting involved in research.
