National Standards for Public Involvement in Research
The standards are:
- a description of what good public involvement in research looks like
- designed to encourage self reflection and learning, including where lessons have been learned when public involvement has failed to lead to expected outcomes.
- a tool to help people and organisations identify what they are doing well, and what needs improving
- intended to be used with any method or approach to public involvement in research
- adaptable to your own situation and can be used alongside other resources such as case studies, public involvement checklists, and toolkits.
