People have expert knowledge about their own health and illness. It is essential that this knowledge is respected and included in health research. Professor MacFarlane and her inter-disciplinary team in the Graduate Entry Medical School are working on projects in Ireland, Europe and in North America to identify best practice to promote the meaningful involvement of patients and the public in health research.
