Patient and Public Involvement
Public involvement is key to producing research relevant to the needs and concerns of those living across Wales. As such, members of the public will be involved in all aspects of the work of the Centre, for example, helping to shape the research agenda by working with the Research Development Groups, advising on research study design and helping to raise public awareness.
I have amassed a great deal of skills, knowledge and experience throughout my career, and I am really enjoying my involvement roles, as it allows me to apply my skills whilst contributing to an area of interest to me, with the ultimate aim of benefitting wider society. I have two young children, which coupled with a chronic health condition, has prompted me to take some time out from full time working, but provided me with the capacity and opportunity to undertake these roles.
I am keen to put the experience I have gained to good use – having been responsible for managing data, information, planning and performance management, among other things, which I have found relevant and valuable in the wider public involvement roles. I am delighted to be a lay member with the Centre for Population Health, as part of the Early Years Advisory Group and the Public Involvement Steering Committee.
