Training and Education

We run PPI study days, seminars and workshops for researchers (and for the public and patients). PPI contributors co-facilitate some of these events with researchers, including our PPI catalysts and trainers/educators from elsewhere in Ireland and abroad.  We also deliver workshops and short introductory PPI seminars to research teams or other groups at University of Galway,  introducing attendees to the basics of PPI.

PPI Clinics

We run PPI clinics on a weekly basis (usually Thursdays) to discuss PPI challenges with researchers, community or patient organisations, and others. Click here email us to arrange a clinic. Clinics typically last 30-45 minutes and take place in University of Galway or virtually.
