Helping You Make The Best recovery Possible
We have a patient representative working with us in UKCCRG and we want to ensure the research we conduct reflects the needs of those who it potentially affects. Our research priorities are informed by patient and public needs, including the James Lind Alliance research prioritisation exercise. It is particularly important to involve patients and public in the design of all our research, because critical care research presents unique challenges in terms of consent and working with very seriously ill people.
Throughout 2019, we are working with the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), the University of Liverpool and the Intensive Care Society to produce some information about what critical care research involves, for patients and the public. We hope to share this soon.
The NIHR, which is the research arm of the NHS, is not specific to critical care research but leads patient and public involvement and engagement in research across the UK.
ICU Steps, a charity to support patients and family in (and after) intensive care have information about getting involved in research, and provide support to researchers by reviewing research ideas and proposals.
