    Involving users in developing health information: new PIF event

    On Wednesday 17 May PIF is delighted to be holding an event that will focus on involving users in developing health information.

    The event will share practical case studies and learning, and will support participants to consider:

    • Understanding user needs
    • How to involve users at each step of information resource development
    • How to involve disadvantaged groups, and/or go beyond talking to the most engaged users
    • Taking a co-production approach
    • Different methods for engaging and seeking feedback from users

    An agenda, delegate fees, venue details and how to register can be found here:


    Community activity

    Involving users is fundamental  to ensure the health information you develop is useful to, and provides effective support for, your audience. It helps ensure your information:

    • Is accessible
    • Is clear and understood
    • Meets users needs
    • Enables users to understand and be involved in decisions about their health and care

    User involvement is not a single exercise, but many steps along your journey to create health information that works.

    This event will hear from a range of speakers who’ve involved different groups and communities in developing their health information. Sessions will cover:

    • Involving users and understanding need
    • Co-production in developing health information
    • A practical focus on user involvement methods

    PIF digital event delegates

    PIF’s events are a great opportunity to engage with other people involved in health information, and a dedicated networking session will provide the opportunity for you to share your projects and questions with other delegates.

    The event will take place in London and the delegate rates are £150 plus VAT for PIF members, or £225 plus VAT for non-members.
