Abstract: The FIRST model was developed as a practical guide for setting up and managing service user involvement in health research. It has been piloted for two years within the field of rheumatology research in the Netherlands. Based on this experience, the researchers have concluded that the model needs to be revised to incorporate training and support for researchers in involvement. It also needs to be more dynamic, recognising that effective working partnerships evolve and change over time.
