Patient and public involvement

Patient and public involvement (PPI) is important to the work of the AAC, ensuring the innovations we support reflect what matters to the people who will use them. Our aim is for people with lived experience (patients and carers or those with other relevant experience) to be involved in each area of the AAC’s work.

We will be producing guidance, with our partners, on how to involve patients and the public in developing different types of innovation. This framework will also let innovators know what involvement is expected when applying for funding.

We are also developing information for patients and carers, which will explain how they can get involved and what they can expect when they do.

In the meantime, some existing resources from our partners which may be useful can be found in the links below:
