New BIRD Patient Research Panel - Bath Institute for Rheumatic Diseases

New BIRD Patient Research Panel

14 June 2021

We has been busy setting up BIRDs new ‘Patient Research Panel’. This is a group of research interested patients who we can contact from time to time to review, comment or get engaged in the requests for help or participation that come through BIRD.  The panel will be made up of people with a mix of rheumatic conditions who are open to various types of patient research engagement that might include a range of researcher requests to help with things such as:

  • reading a document from a lay person perspective
  • commenting on a questionnaire design or completing one
  • reviewing a video or podcast (or taking part)
  • taking part in a workshop
  • agreeing to work with a research team as their ‘patient expert’
