PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT MATERIAL
Public engagement is crucial for the success of ERASE-TB so as to communicate the importance and relevance of our research. Each site aims to share information and knowledge about the aims and methodology of the trial with the general public. Given that ERASE is recruiting local among communities, this is especially important in order to build trust, to inspire and engage, and for the communities to be assured that they are a vital component of the trial.
Our public engagement aims to empower and help patients to have a clearer understanding of their conditions and make better-informed decisions about their health. It can also inspire the next generation, not only to work in research but also to become the research volunteers of the future.
For young people, we have devised a Schools Engagement Programme that includes science fairs, science clubs and student internships with the aim of inspiring a passion for science, developing projects and ideas, and enabling students to work with qualified health professionals.
