Students and PPI contributors from the Collaborative Doctoral Programme in Chronic Disease Prevention (CDP-CDP) share PPI guidance document for PhD Students.
On the 11th of October 2022, students and PPI contributors from the Collaborative Doctoral Programme in Chronic Disease Prevention (CDP-CDP) shared their experiences of PPI at the online PPI Shared Learning Group for PhD students.
There are six scholars on this award and the doctoral programme has a strong commitment to PPI. The scholars all had different experiences in setting up PPI panels. This led them to develop a guidance document to optimise the impact of PPI across the six projects and to ensure transparency and consistency within the programme. The scholars presented this document and their approaches to PPI at the online event and were met with a positive reaction from other students in the group. Attendees stated that the guidance document will be useful for them as they begin to plan and implement PPI in their own projects as guidance on embedding PPI in structured doctoral programmes is still somewhat limited.
You can access the guidance document and a blog written by the scholars here.
The Shared Learning Group for PhD students meets online once per month and provides an informal opportunity for PhD students to keep up to date with the latest PPI research and best-practice approaches. It also provides a forum for members to discuss their own PPI plans and experiences, if they wish to do so. The group is open to PhD researchers of all stages and is facilitated by Dr Emmy Racine, Programme Manager, PPI Ignite Network@ UCC.
