Episode 3: PPI from an Investigator’s Perspective

Season 1, Ep. 3

Eibhlín Mulroe talks to Prof Sean Dinneen, a Consultant Endocrinologist based in Galway & NUIG. They discuss Public & Patient Involvement. “(Patients) have been co-researchers, and co-investigators,” says Prof Dinneen. “They have been a huge part of what we have achieved over the years, and we have completed and published a pilot of a random control trial of that intervention... Recognising early on that we (healthcare professionals) were not going to crack this on our own is how I got involved in PPI and it has been one of the most rewarding things I have done.”
