Collaborative Research And Training in the European Health Psychology Society – The Early Career Researcher Network of the EHPS


CREATE organises interactive workshops each year. Prominent experts within the field of health psychology are invited to lead these workshops. The overall aim of these workshops is to enhance knowledge and skills of participants. Workshop themes are current topics in health psychology theory and research, but also involve methodology and more practical issues like the process of developing papers for peer-review.

Please note, that if the number of applicants exceeds the number of places, CREATE reserves the rights to select participants based on diversity.

Upcoming Workshop

Empowering Collaboration: Patient and Public Involvement in Health Research

Empowering Collaboration: Patient and Public Involvement in Health Research

Workshop Description:

Unlock the potential of patient and public involvement in your research journey! Join the interactive CREATE workshop to integrate participatory elements into your projects. Delve into the dynamics of involving members of the public in research, explore real-world examples, and learn to navigate the complexities of patient and public involvement. We will cover the what, why, when and how of involvement and highlight how to include those communities not often heard in research. The workshop will equip you with an increased understanding of the benefits of involving those with lived experience and the practicalities of how to go about doing it. In this 1.5 day workshop, facilitated by Dr. Anna Levke Brütt (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany) and Dr. Elspeth Mathie (University of Hertfordshire, UK) you will have a chance to explore how patients and members of the public (experts by experience) can get involved in your future research.
