Educating for Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement 3: Making the economic case

The Higher Education Academy logo

Following two successful national events in 2011 and 2012, we are delighted to announce the third national conversation on EPPI/E.

This year's event will build on the achievements of the past two years when we have come together to debate and explore the complex field of patient and public involvement and engagement from educational perspectives. In October this year we will meet together to continue our conversations on teaching, learning and research but from the standpoint of making a persuasive case for investing in radical learning innovations aligned to the fully engaged scenario of the future.

We acknowledge the on-going support of E4PPI by the Higher Education Academy and other supporters. Although the national conversation on E4PPI is not a traditional academic conference, we do welcome contributions from all colleagues, including patients and service users who are actively engaged in work both within the HE sector, the community and health care organisations.
