Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) Celebration Event
Do you want an opportunity to showcase your research to members of the public?
Join us on the 23rd October 2019 for a Celebration of PPI in research!
The College of Medical and Dental Sciences is hosting a ‘Thank You’ event for members of the public who are involved in University of Birmingham research. This is a unique opportunity to thank members of the public for their valued contributions, including those who are part of our PPI groups, co-applicants on bids, members of Public Advisory Groups or public members of Trial Steering Committees.
As part of the event, we want to showcase BHP’s world-class research and we are inviting researchers/research teams to take part.

Research Methods for Clinical Trials
Clinical trials have huge societal impact, providing the best evidence of the effectiveness of healthcare, social care and public health interventions. Research through clinical trials is a growing global business in academic institutions, industry, the NHS and across public health organisations. To ensure efficient trials that reach successful completion, trial staff require a solid grounding and knowledge of the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of clinical trials. The Birmingham Centre for Clinical Trials (BCCT) organises and runs a 3 day course in research methods for clinical trials, which provides an overview of the research process from idea and design to analysis and publication.
18-20th November 2019
23-25th March 2020
6-8th July 2020
16-18 November 2020
The course is CPD approved and accredited with 18 CPD points. It is designed for a broad clinical trial audience working in trusts, academia or industry; ranging from those who have little experience in clinical trials to those who wish to expand their knowledge of clinical trial methodology and the clinical trial process.
