The Public Involvement in Education and Research partnership at Bournemouth University is a group of people who have used a wide range of health and social care services, or who are carers for family members or friends. The Partnership aims to enhance the education and subsequent practice of the future workforce in health and social care, having had first-hand experience of health and social care services.
As part of the PIER partnership’s work to embed service user and carer perspectives into health and social care education, they have created and collated a number of resources, including academic and research-based publications, videos and audio recordings for use in Higher Education and in practice.
The PIER partnership has been collaborating with the Teaching Partnership on PELP days and enabled practitioners to work with Experts by Experience. We tackled issues like risk management with students together to develop best practice with the Service User perspective in focus.
PIER have been involved in the admissions process and support the selection process of future students. Students are asked to view and reflect on one of the videos produced by PIER as part of the interview process.
