The Medical Research Charities Group (MRCG), a national organisation of charities in Ireland, has published two new guides to help medical research charities and patient organisations.

For medical research charities looking to incorporate patient and public involvement (PPI) into their practices for the first time or to develop their PPI practices further, MRCG’s new guide ‘Developing a PPI Strategy’ will lead you through the things you need to consider and to support you in putting a PPI strategy in place. 

Patient registries are broadly recognised as a critical underpinning for improving healthcare through research. The challenges to developing registries are large but getting less, as technology develops and expertise is shared. MRCG has developed practical and simple guidance on registry development.
