During the workshop, participants discuss how patients and the public can be involved in research. Participants also learn how to use storytelling as a tool to visualize key stakeholders and their incentives.

The workshop is arranged on two occasions: the first was arranged on December 8-9 and the second on December 12-13. Philip Leissner participated in the first workshop. He appreciated the structure of the workshop: 

– After we got an introductory theoretical briefing, we were divided into groups where we got to work with specific cases. It was a good balance between theory and practice, since we got to try designing our own interventions. I appreciated that we got to present our interventions as a drama with different roles, problems and solutions. That made the discussions more fun.
