This training session will give participants the opportunity to network and share examples of their activities to help raise the profile of research.  

Course Summary: Building Research Partnerships (BRP) training has been designed to inform and educate research professionals and members of the public and patients about exploring the ways patients and members of the public can and should take part in research development at NHS organisations.
