Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is hosting a special event to give people the chance to hear about how they can help shape the healthcare of the future by getting involved in clinical research in the city.
The event, to be held at the Medical Education Centre at the Northern General Hospital on Tuesday 15th May, 6pm-8pm, will showcase the latest research in diabetes, cancer and healthcare devices as well as featuring key developments in patient and public involvement in research.
People will be able to hear about trials that are currently running that they could join, as well as how they can participate in patient panels that review research proposals from a patient perspective.
The event will include a series of presentations followed by poster viewing, with display stands offering information about a wide range of research areas. There will also be a chance to have a tour of the hospital’s state-of-the-art Clinical Research Facility.
Professor Simon Heller, Director of Research and Development at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to find out more about the ways in which we’re working to drive forward new treatments and care for patients.
“The involvement of patients and the public is essential if we’re to continue to be at the cutting edge of healthcare here in Sheffield. People can really add value to our research, for example by sitting on our patient panels. There are also opportunities for people to gain the latest treatments and help thousands of others by participating in trials.
“I strongly encourage people to come along to this event to find out more.”
