HRB Open Research
The Patient Voice
The public and the patient should be central contributors to research, as they are the ones who are directly impacted by it, and so should have a say and role in shaping health and social care.
This has long been recognised by the Health Research Board in Ireland, which is at the forefront of patient centered research, helping to lead the way for public and patient involvement in Ireland.
Ensuring that the patient voice is heard
'The Patient Voice' is our Patient Centred Research Hub for HRB Open Research, demonstrating to researchers how effective patient involvement in research can be, while also encouraging open dialogue and putting the patient experience front and centre.
We hope this campaign will bring together a wide range of content related to HRB itself, its publishing platform and beyond, to emphasise the importance of PPI and patient centred research. On here, we plan to showcase patient research success stories, share video Q&As, articles, blogs and more.
If you have any PPI related research you’d like to publish or any ideas for content we could feature on this landing page, please get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
