EPIC-Norfolk Participant Panel open discussion meeting was held at the Assembly Rooms, Norwich.
The meeting was very kindly sponsored by the Diabetes Research Network (DRN). Ten researchers and nine participants from EPIC-Norfolk attended the meeting, with apologies from two further participants.
The aim of this meeting was to discover a way forward in our approach to participant involvement in the EPIC research. The afternoon took the form of an informal discussion group and time was allowed for all attendees to have a say via open discussion sessions.
Attendees recognised the need for future participant involvement and quarterly meetings were decided upon. Panel name suggestions were put forward and discussion took place on how future meetings should be structured.
