The Community Engagement and Involvement Working Group, including researchers, patients and the public will oversee development and monitor delivery of a tailored Community Engagement and Involvement strategy for the Centre for IMPACT that:
- Identifies and addresses training needs of the range of stakeholders.
- Pays attention to and tackles inherent power imbalances between different groups.
- Values the expertise and unique perspectives of those living with the health problem being researched.
This includes, for example, ensuring appropriate reimbursement, creating an environment in which everyone is empowered to share their views, and equitable involvement in decision-making.
