PAIR | Making research (PPI) more inclusive & accessible for underrepresented communities

PAIR (Participatory Arts in Health & Social Care Research) aims help research teams to make their research more inclusive, accessible, and beneficial to the communities that matter to them.

PAIR uses innovative arts approaches within public & patient involvement in research. We believe this new approach to PPI will make research more accessible for communities currently underrepresented within health and social care, and will ultimately lead to better-informed research and a healthier society for all.

The project brings together a team from across the North West, representing Pennine Care NHS Foundation TrustSocial Care And Society Manchester at The University of Manchester, Applied Research Collaboration North West CoastApplied Research Collaboration Greater ManchesterClinical Research Network North West CoastClinical Research Network Greater ManchesterLancaster University Health Research DivisionBuilding Bridges Burnley and ourselves here at Made By Mortals.

If you’d like to find out more, we’ve created a short video explaining PAIR and the work we’ve undertaken so far. You can watch this here: 

The PAIR team would love the video to reach as many people working in health & social care research as possible, so we would really appreciate it if you could share the link within your own network.
