Patient and public engagement in research is where information and knowledge about research is provided and disseminated to the public.
Increasing public awareness about research is a very important part of the work we do at Crohn's & Colitis UK. We do this in various ways. These include:
- Encouraging people to join our research community – where we share the latest news and opportunities in the field of Crohn's & Colitis research
- Sharing opportunities to participate and help shape research
- Sharing and disseminating results from research studies
- Recruiting Research Champion volunteers who engage the public in all things research
We believe our work in this area will encourage future involvement and participation in research which will ultimately move us closer to finding a cure for Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Please see below for opportunites to help us raise awareness and engage the public in research into Crohn's and Colitis.
