Patient and Public Involvement in Research

Patient and Public Involvement in Research

This is an opportunity to be part of a stakeholder group for a research project that is helping to explore how to improve the safe use of insulin in hospital. In particular, we are looking at how hospitals facilitate people to self-administer and self-manage with insulin whilst in hospital.

We would like to involve people over 18 years of age with any type of diabetes who use insulin, and have had the experience of being in hospital over the last 5 years (for any reason). If you care for someone with diabetes who uses insulin, we would also be interested in hearing from you. You are welcome to participate if you live anywhere in the UK as being involved does not require travel.

We would like your input 3 or 4 times over a period of 12 months, either over the phone or via email.

We would like you to comment on documents involved in our study (e.g. participant information sheets and interview guides) and to be part of an advisory panel to help direct the study along the way so that it is as relevant for people with diabetes as possible. This would be done over the phone or via email with the research team, depending on your preference.

Please contact Amie Bain ( by 15th November if you are interested in being involved.
