Join us for an evening discussing the importance of researchers working with patients. We will explore research studies where patients have played an influential role and hear how academics can work with patients to transform services. There will also be an exhibition from 5.30–6pm and 7–7.45pm at SITraN.

Speakers will include:

Professor Brendan Stone and Chrissy Bonham. Brendan and Chrissy will speak about their work in mental health. Brendan was given the Excellence in Patient Experience Award by the NHS Yorkshire and Humber Leadership Academy in recognition of his work to improve support services for people with mental health issues. Chrissy runs a number of pioneering projects in mental health including the Narrative Masterclass for medical students and people living with mental health difficulties.

Dr Esther Hobson from SITraN will speak about patient and public involvement both through the Sheffield Motor Neurone Disease (MND)Research Advisory Group and involvement on specific projects including the Sheffield Support Snood, MyTube (an information website made with patients for patients with MND) and TiM (telehealth in MND).
