Welcome to the Public and Patient Engagement Collaborative


The Public and Patient Engagement (PPE) Collaborative was established in 2011. Our research and service activities focus on the role of patients and publics in health system policy making and health research, with a specific focus on the evaluation of these efforts. 
This website has been designed as a portal to access the latest research and news from the PPE Collaborative and to share tools for use in practice. Please use the links above to learn more about the PPE Collaborative.
You can also get updates about the PPE Collaborative's work on Twitter.
