PRIMER members and researchers have co-developed a suite of workshops to provide practical advice for researchers interested in public involvement and engagement.
All patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) training sessions are co-facilitated by researchers and members of PRIMER to ensure that workshop attendees receive insight and expertise from both a researcher and a public contributor perspective.
Researchers new to PPIE
