Public Health masterclass

Hertfordshire County Council is running a masterclass about the importance of public and patient involvement in the research and development of health and social care services.

Taking place from 2-4pm on Wednesday 8 February at the University of Hertfordshire, the free event is for anyone working with patients and service users in the statutory, private or voluntary sector.

The masterclass will look at the benefits and challenges of public and patient involvement in research and education and will use examples from specific health-related projects, including diabetes, arthritis, cystic fibrosis and dementia.

Involving people who use health and social care services in the research process can enhance the quality and impact of research findings.  Collaborative working in activities such as the recruitment of new students, curriculum development, classroom teaching and assessment can enhance the knowledge and skills of health and social care students.

If you are interested in attending, please register for this event please register via the Masterclass Eventbrite page - found here.  You will need the password to access the registration page - the password is masterclass2017.
