This session, chaired by Emma Kinloch, Chair of NCRI Consumer Forum, will explain the role of patient and public involvement (PPI) in cancer research, why it is important and how you can get involved. Panellists will share their experiences of being a PPI representative (also known as ‘consumers’) or working with PPI representatives.

The session aims to highlight the range of different involvement opportunities across the NCRI Partnership and beyond, with a view to encouraging many more people to get involved in cancer research. There will be an opportunity for you to submit questions live during the session.

NCRI will be joined by:

  • Tim Banks – Head of Research at Tenovus Cancer Care
  • Dave Chuter – PPI representative, NCRI Consumer Forum
  • Alison Fielding – PPI representative, NCRI Consumer Forum
  • Professor Hisham Mehanna – Chair of Head and Neck Surgery at University of Birmingham

 

Registration is free.
