“Involving users in the design and conduct of evaluation, as well as ethically preferable, has important practical advantages. Recruitment & retention are likely to be better if the intervention is valued by potential participants, concerns about fairness are addressed and, in the case of community based interventions, community leaders support the evaluation. Involving users may also contribute to better understanding of the process by which change is achieved” Developing & evaluating complex interventions MRC
“ I often say to researchers ‘turn the pyramid upside down’. Often with research when you look at how the project has been mapped out – the last point is the person. And I have said turn it upside down. Start with the person – then it should evolve from there” ‘Turning the pyramid upside down’ INVOLVE 2012

“It has been a very constructive process. It’s good to feel that you are being listened to and what you say is important. Often service users feel like they are the end of the chain – things happen to you. Giving some feedback into the system helps you feel you do have some control” “it was a really good example of doing things well. We delivered a good end-product that has been received well and in a timely manner. The whole thing from start to finish was a journey and learning curve for all, but it was focused – and a good job done…” Turning the pyramid upside down INVOVE 2010
“I would recommend involving service users as fundamentally it can change the whole perception of the topic being researched. It ‘keeps it real’ and sustains a momentum and determination to provide a tangible outcome”
