A new research article looking at public and patient involvement in research has been published.
It reviews the way the impact of involvement is measured and calls for more acknowledgement of:
- different rationales for public involvement, and how the desire to measure effects might be shaping these rationales.
- that there might be negative impacts of public involvement as these are largely unreported.
- the impact of power and in particular how power relations play out in research settings.
