Bursaries for patient and public involvement in research

Bursaries for patient and public involvement in research

We are pleased to announce additional bursary funding has been made available by ACCORD to support researchers to actively involve patients and the public in research in NHS Lothian.

Regulatory and funding bodies increasingly expect researchers to demonstrate the involvement of patients or the public in the research process. The benefits include research relevance, better design and conduct of research, better information provision and enhanced recruitment and retention to studies.
