This article reports on three case studies where patient and public involvement has made a difference to DeNDRoN research projects. In the first case study the involvement seemed to boost recruitment rates in a project that was not recruiting to target. In the second, involvement in writing the patient information sheet helped with finding the right language to describe the complexity and sensitivity of the research project. In the third, a patient reference panel contributed to many different aspects of the study, from the design through to dissemination.
