Patient & Public Involvement webinar: A philosopher’s approach to equality
Thursday 6 May 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This webinar discussed equality of opportunity in patient & public involvement in health research from the perspective of a philosopher. You can view a recording of the webinar by clicking the link below.
A commitment to provide equal opportunities for all and address any barriers to diverse and inclusive patient and public involvement (PPI) seems a non-disputable moral good. But why is unequal access to PPI morally problematic? Is the absence of marginalised or seldom heard groups always wrong? What are the ethical standards that a health researcher should follow when designing, implementing and assessing their PPI strategies?
This webinar was presented by Sapfo Lignou, a researcher in the Ethics of Global Psychiatry at the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities and a member of the Neuroscience, Ethics and Society Team in the University of Oxford’s Department of Psychiatry.
The webinar was organised by a collaboration of Oxford-based organisations that work together to support patient, carer and public involvement in health research.
