The Patient Public Involvement (PPI) is the way in which patients, the public, service users and carers can influence their own care and treatment; the research is carried out with or by the patients and those who have experience of a condition to help bring about improvements to the way the research is designed and care is provided. The PPI model in KolGoTrg is the first of its kind in India and is being modelled by the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) and the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) tool kits.
- Patient Public Involvement Group and activities: Our Patient Public Involvement Group consists of survivors of all domains of women’s cancer who want to influence and engage in cancer research activities. Participants will work with the KolGo Trg Research Team to remodel the research activities and protocols and help in strengthening the Research on women’s cancers. If you are a cancer survivor and want to engage in our PPI activities please register yourself on the “Registration” section of the Patient Public Involvement Toolkit. If you want to participate in any of our clinical trials please view our current research activities on the “Ongoing Research Activities” page and check your eligibility or contact us.
- Patient Public Involvement Toolkit: Our Toolkits are being currently designed jointly by the KolGoTrg and Cancer Research UK (CRUK). This page will be updated shortly.
- Sarbojaya: Formed in 2018, Sarbojaya is a survivor group dedicated to empowering women’s cancer survivors in India. Sarbojaya, another name for goddess Durga, a deity of positive energy, empowers women to conquer their fears of cancer and come together for a positive outlook. Sabajaya has been an active group performing various Survivorship Activities, and is an active participant in our PPI meetings.
