Dr Louise Murphy (QUESTS Education and Communication Working Group Lead) and Dr Andrew Hunter (QUESTS Co-Chair) facilitated a workshop on “Conducting Qualitative Research in Trials: Building your PPI skills” for the UCD PPI initiative The Patient Voice Members on Friday 7th June 2019. The Patient Voice members are very active in a number of trials and training was provided on how qualitative research approaches can be utilised to enhance their roles as PPI representatives and peer researchers. The group has considerable experience of the research process and of contributing to trials. This made for an interesting and informative day for all.
Thanks to Dr Emma Dorris at UCD for inviting QUESTS and hosting the day.
