BAME PATIENT AND PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT (PPI) CANCER GROUP

ReIMAGINE is committed to Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) at all stages of research involving cancer populations. PPI means actively working in partnership with patients and members of the public to plan, manage, design and carry out research. This involves informing the decision making process of researchers, which can entail reviewing content,  prioritising outcomes and/or evaluating impact.

 

The Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) community are disproportionately under-represented in research. For this reason, we are very keen to ensure that more people from BAME backgrounds engage in research, and therefore we would like to form a PPI Cancer Group exclusively for the BAME community.  Your participation in this special interest group will inform research and ultimately improve cancer outcomes and reduce health inequalities.

Help contribute to research by signing up. For more information please email Saran Green, Patient and Public Involvement Coordinator for ReIMAGINE – saran.green@kcl.ac.uk

 

This study is being launched with funding of £4.1m from the Medical Research Council and £1m from Cancer Research UK, as part of the MRC's Stratified Medicine Initiative.
