The Patient and Public Involvement Toolkit, written by Minervation Associates Sally Crowe and Julia Cartwright, and edited by Minervation Dogsbody Douglas Badenoch, is now available.
The aim of the Toolkit is to help the reader undertake effective patient and public involvement (PPI) in health service development, research, policy or commissioning.
Like the rest of the Toolkit books, the PPI book is pocket-sized and designed to be easily accessible. Sally and Julia’s extensive experience of making PPI work in a broad range of settings has given them a real insight into the practical steps you can take to ensure success.
For example, the book addresses issues such as:
- Recruiting participants
- Sustaining active networks
- Running effective meetings
- Dealing with difficult situations
- Managing conflict
All this material is put into a solid context of understanding the role and purpose of PPI in health care, what it can and cannot achieve, and how to evaluate its success.
