Abstract: This paper presents a framework for designing and evaluating public involvement in research, which is based on findings from the literature and the authors’ experience. The framework consists of three elements: • drivers for involvement – who gets involved and why, which researchers involve people and why, and the wider research context • processes of involvement – bringing people together and supporting debate/ decision-making and how people interact • impact – on people, research, policy & practice and personal decisions. The authors hope that better planning, reporting and evaluation of involvement may result from using this framework.
