Steering Group

The Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) Patient and Public Involvement & Engagement (PPI&E) Steering Group has a responsibility to provide advice and guidance on developing CAPC public involvement and engagement strategy.

Who we are

The Steering Group has members with different backgrounds and experience. In keeping with our view that research should be an active and balanced partnership, we have approximately equal numbers of public and research staff members.

The Steering Group supports the CAPC PPI&E coordinators Julie Clayton and Victoria Wilson.

Role of the PPI&E coordinator

The role of the PPI&E coordinators is to strengthen and embed best practice in PPI&E at CAPC, by guiding and supporting researchers to:

  • form successful partnerships with members of the public;
  • involve the public in deciding on research questions, planning, and design;
  • find public contributors to be involved throughout the study, share research findings and plan future research;
  • ensure that PPI&E is inclusive of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.
