Why do people get involved?
"For me, this is a really positive way to put some of my experience back into the health system."
People get involved in research for many different reasons. We know that some people decide to get involved because they:
- Want a chance to give something back and help influence research to benefit others
- Have personal knowledge and experience which they would like research to take into account
- Want to help bring about improvements to health services and treatments for themself and others
- Would like the opportunity to develop personal skills by learning about research and generally gaining experience and confidence
Whatever your reasons for getting involved, there are potential benefits for the research itself, for future services and treatments, for the people involved and for you.
