Patient & Public Involvement & Engagement Strategy
PSTRC is moving towards co-production
On 25 January 2017, a group of clinicians, researchers, patients and members of the public attended our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Strategy Working Group Meeting.
True Cut: Making sense of our mistakes
Supported by Imperial's Societal Engagement Seed Fund
In 2017, the Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (funded by the National Institute for Health Research) and the Imperial College Master’s in Surgical Education (in the Department of Surgery and Cancer) won funding from the Imperial College London’s Societal Engagement Seed Fund to put on a scripted reading of a play with a discussion afterwards. The play, about a young surgeon who makes a mistake during surgery, was written by David Alderson, a consultant Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgeon based at Torbay Hospital. Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust also supported the project.
