Brief description: 

Participants will use exemplars of data-intensive research to learn how to conduct PE/I in a meaningful way. They will choose the types of people that they will engage with – these could be patients with the disease of interest or members of the public with an interest in data use – and consider how to recruit or contact them. They will develop some initial plans as to the variety of methods they could use to engage with these groups. Finally, they will consider the ethics and challenges of PE/I in data-intensive health research.

  • understand the similarities and differences between PE/I in different types of research
  • know how to identify which groups of the public they should engage with
  • know how to choose from common methods to engage with the identified groups
  • understand the ethics and challenges of doing PE/I in data-intensive health research
