Public and Patient Involvement and Engagement

At the HPRU in Immunisation we have developed and refined our PPIE aims as of March 2021:
  • Our aim for public involvement is to improve the quality and relevance of research in vaccines and immunisation by the HPRU.
  • Our aim for public engagement is to raise awareness of our research at the HPRU and to share knowledge of research about vaccines.
Our PPIE activities include:
  • Presenting at ‘Pint of Science’ evenings, at ‘Science Museum Lates’, at science days in schools, Cheltenham Science Festival, Wellcome Packed lunch, and podcasts
  • Representation from our public panel at the annual advisory board meeting
  • Requesting and receiving feedback on research documents, such as study information sheets and questionnaires
  • Speaking with parents and adults about their reasons for vaccine hesitancy
