Research volunteers workshop: report on workshop proceedings: discussion, conclusions and next steps.
STS Department, UCL: London UK.
The Research Volunteers Workshop provided the opportunity for a diverse group of stakeholders in biomedical research to come together and discuss the role of the research participants (or ‘subjects’) in contemporary research practice. Those invited included researchers, patients, patient groups, funders, managers and policymakers. The objective was to try and assess practices in order to improve both the experience of the participants, and the quality of research findings. Wellmanaged volunteer involvement has the potential to generate research results that are better honed to public needs, and of more reliable quality. The findings of the workshop have wideranging implications for policy.
