Chapter 17: Public engagement in health research

Michelle Collins and Emma Halliday


In this chapter we explore the reasons why health researchers are increasingly expected to engage with the public in their research. By the end of the chapter you should: understand key concepts and principles associated with public engagement; be confident in how to go about developing a plan to engage members of the public in your research project; be able to recognize some of the practical, ethical and methodological challenges of undertaking public engagement; and be aware of the possible impacts on research and for people involved that are associated with engagement and how to go about measuring these.
