Masterclasses for patient, carer and service user organisations

Each year the Public Involvement Programme runs a set of workshops to help patient, carer and service user organisations learn more about NICE's activities and the opportunities to participate in NICE's work.

Who are the masterclasses for?

The masterclasses are for any of our patient, carer or service user stakeholder organisations, or for those organisations who are interested in working with NICE but haven't done so to date.

Venue

The masterclasses are currently held in our London offices.

Duration

The masterclasses are either a half or a whole day

Cost

The masterclasses are free for any of our stakeholders or those considering become a stakeholder (usually limited to one person per organisation). Refreshments are provided. We are not able to reimburse travel or subsistence expenses.

Are there limits on who can attend?

The maximum number of attendees for our masterclasses is usually 25 participants. Due to the popularity of these training sessions, we usually limit places to one person per organisation, and on a ‘first come first serve basis'.

Reserve list

If all places are taken up, additional organisations (and additional members from an organisations that have been offered a place) will be added to a reserve list. If places become available these will be offered to those on the reserve list.
