Survey Report - A snapshot of current practices and perceptions of Public & Patient Involvement (PPI) within the Avicenna Alliance
Recognizing the vital role of public and patient involvement (PPI) in ensuring relevant and beneficial medical research, the Avicenna Alliance (AA) conducted a survey among its members. Results revealed low PPI awareness, varied perceptions, and limited support from member organizations, despite a collective recognition of its value.
In response, the AA's PPI task force plans to foster a stronger PPI identity and common language within the AA, provide internal guidance to members, and establish connections with expert PPI institutions. On an ongoing basis, the TF will systematically identify PPI opportunities, and encourage a proactive approach to PPI among members, ensuring their continued competitiveness.
By implementing these measures, the AA aims to amplify the impact of PPI in medical research and innovation, creating a collaborative environment that brings together the public, patients, and healthcare providers to shape the future of in silico medicine.
