Meet the researcher
We also want additional patient partners to be involved in monthly “Meet the Researcher” discussions to hear about our research, help develop research proposals, and support reviewing of research findings. If you are interested please see details below.
WHAT IS INVOLVED
We will be running monthly events, initially online via Zoom, for health researchers to share their ideas, studies and results with patients and the wider public. We would love for you to join us. As well as hearing about our work, we would appreciate your input to these research studies. We might ask you to give your ideas on:
- Research design and patient commitment required
- Identifying ways in which the study could be improved
- Encouraging diversity and inclusivity of access to research activities
- Helping researchers communicate the findings in a way everybody can understand
Talks are the fourth Monday of the month at 1pm.
Next Event 28 November 1-2 pm
Does adding a cognitive behavioural approach to pilates improve outcomes in people with persistent low back pain? - Rona Dickson
Can pre-operative patient health questionnaires predict poor outcomes after surgery for hip impingement? - Simon Wood
Booking is essential: This workshop will be online and in person. In either case, please register for this event - online participants will receive a link for viewing after registering. Please book your place here.
Natalie is Outreach and Engagement Officer for NDORMS and will be introducing the speakers and asking your questions. Please let her know on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions that you would like to submit in advance.
