Research Assistant - Public & Patient Voice

With a focus on equity and inclusion, GBHI is committed to ensuring that the voice of individuals with lived experience of brain health challenges is central to the mission and vision of the organization. As such, GBHI, together with people with dementia and their families, is developing a new ‘Patient and public voice’ (PPV) program. PPV, formerly known as Patient & Public Involvement (PPI), is the active partnership between the public and researchers/professionals in research, advocacy, training and service development. Active involvement may take the form of consultation, collaboration or user control to direct and guide the work.

To support the development and operation of Public and Patient Voice program within GBHI, we wish to hire a PPV Coordinator who will play a major role in the development, coordination, roll out and evaluation of an initial PPV training project (Phase 1 of the program) for the GBHI community. The PPV Coordinator will work closely with PPV members from within GBHI and our partner organization, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. By funding a PPV Research Assistant role, GBHI hopes to set an example of best practice within the global dementia research community.
