Building Research Partnerships
This resource is delivered across the UK by trained members of the public and people affected by cancer. To find out where and when, please register your interest.
Research is for everyone. Everyone can help shape the future of research.
Have you ever wanted to get involved with research, but don't know where to start? Are you a researcher who would like to involve the public in your research, but don't know how to recruit and train them?
This free workshop outlines the different types of research methods and terminology used in research and how the public can get involved as well as exploring the issues related to becoming and being a member of the public involved in research.
Why are we doing this?
Building Research Partnerships is an updated version of an internationally peer-reviewed, commended free course that has been run by Macmillan and the National Institute for Health Research Cancer Research Network (NCRN) since 2007.
We've worked with the National Institute for Health Research to make this updated resource relevant to any type of health and social research, not only cancer.
You can learn more about our work in the Building Research Partnerships Report.
Who is it for?
