Get Involved

Service Users, Patients and Carers

Do you have personal experience of the prevention or treatment of pressure ulcers?

We always welcome new network members. Being part of the network will give you the chance to:

  • Help researchers and health professionals better understand the experiences of service users and carers
  • Help make sure pressure ulcer research is relevant to the public
  • Help make sure pressure ulcer research is carried out in a respectful way
  • Meet other people who are in a similar situation to you
  • Learn more about research and build your skills
  • Access development opportunities

No previous experience of research is needed and not all members of the network are expected to be involved in all areas of work. We will work together to find the level of commitment which is right for you. We aim for the network to be a supportive environment where everyone is able to actively contribute. Preparation and ongoing support will be provided.

All expenses will be reimbursed.

For more information on payment please see our payment policy.
