CÚRAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices and Galway Film Centre are partnering with the HRB Primary Care Clinical Trials Network Ireland and PPI Ignite @ NUI Galway for Science on Screen 2019. A fund of €35,000 is available to create a half-hour documentary on the topic of PPI. PPI refers to Public and Patient Involvement, which means that people who are likely to be affected by new treatments or programmes developed through research are directly involved in planning and shaping decisions about the research. PPI Ignite @ NUI Galway aims to bring about a culture change in how healthcare research is conducted across the University, supporting researchers to enable the public and patient voice to guide their research.
In Ireland, many research teams have incorporated PPI excellently into their research, notably in the areas of intellectual disability, mental health, diabetes, primary care, chronic disease and dementia. This year, filmmakers are being invited to bring the story of PPI to the screen.
