Table 2 Checklist for planning patient and public involvement in EBD projects

From: Working with public contributors to improve the patient experience at the Manchester Clinical Research Facility: an evaluation of the Experience Based Design approach

1. Provide public contributors with ample opportunities to influence the design and implementation of the project from beginning to end
2. Provide public contributors with appropriate training and support tailored both to their and the projects needs and regularly check with public contributors that the support provided continues to be fit for purpose
3. Manage the project team’s expectations regarding the amount of time that certain aspects of the project are likely to require
4. Provide ample time for data analysis to enable action plans resulting from the EBD work to be fully informed by all project partners interpretations of data
5. Emphasize to all project partners (both staff and public contributors) the likely benefits of the project both personally and professionally to them
