Wellcome: An inquiry into involving young people in health research

Monday 16 August 2021

Earlier this year, Wellcome published an inquiry exploring the role, benefits, and potential of young people’s involvement in health research that may be of interest to you/your networks.

The report had two objectives:

  1. To conduct a rapid evidence review of current published credible international research in young people’s involvement in health research, strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in the literature and develop a framework for young people’s involvement in health research; and
  2. To gather the views of a variety of stakeholders on how young people can be most effectively involved in health research and how Wellcome can best support them to contribute.

Jen Preston, NIHR CYP MedTech’s PPI Lead, was involved in this important piece of work.
