Patient and Public Involvement - Scientist Training Programme
In 2014 Health Education England (HEE) commissioned Newcastle University and the Manchester Academy for Healthcare Scientist Education to undertake a project to aid in the implementation of Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in the Scientist Training Programme (STP).
The project was jointly overseen by HEE and the Council for Healthcare Science in Higher Education (CHCS) to build upon the work undertaken by the Councils PPI subgroup. The project report was launched at a dissemination event on the 29th June 2015. and can be located here.
The project focussed on the provision of PPI for the STP in the higher education institutions (HEIs); however it is anticipated that the learning and the implementation of this material may be applied across the whole of healthcare science and genomics training, to workplace learning as well as across other non-healthcare science programmes.
This response to recommendations and implementation guidance has been compiled by HEE, the CHCS, the National School of Healthcare Science and the Academy for Healthcare Sciences who have defined authority for the quality, accreditation and assurance of STP programmes.
