Learning from efforts to engage young people as partners and practitioners in research
Presented by: Dr Sarah Bernays
To ensure that health policies and services are meeting the needs of adolescents, young people must be involved in their development and implementation. Meaningful engagement and inclusion of young people in research, not only as participants but as developers and practitioners of research, remains rare.
Dr Sarah Bernays will reflect on the learning from an ongoing programme of participatory research with young people in resource-stretched settings, in which we are developing a range of approaches to include young people as central players across the spectrum of research activities: from being researchers themselves; to shaping the design and delivery of research; as well as co-designing interventions and leading innovative dissemination of evidence.
