Researchers are ‘missing a trick’ with public involvement

Health researchers are 'missing a trick' by not demonstrating how patients and the public have contributed to the design and conduct of research, the HRA has recently said. In this article, Jim Elliott, Public Involvement Lead at the HRA, looks at the importance of researchers describing their patient and public involvement in enough detail to make the REC (Research Ethics Committee) approval process more straightforward. Dr Sheila Fisher, Chair of an ethics committee in Leeds, talks about the purpose of RECs and offers advice for involving the public in research.
