New publication - GRIPP2 reporting checklists

The EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) Network is an international initiative that seeks to improve the reliability and value of health research by promoting transparent and accurate reporting and wider use of robust reporting guidelines.

Chris Morris from PenCRU was a co-author on a new paper that describes following the EQUATOR Network method to develop reporting guidelines for public involvement in research. The GRIPP2 checklists (short form and long form) are the first international guidance for reporting public involvement in health and social health research. This paper described the development of the GRIPP2 checklists, which aim to improve the quality, transparency, and consistency of the evidence on public involvement in research and to ensure that practice is based on best evidence. 

Our academic publications describing PenCRU research have always included a short paragraph detailing public involvement in our projects. The GRIPP2 short checklist will be especially useful to report our partnership with families in research in our future papers.

To encourage its wide dissemination, this article is freely accessible on both The BMJ and Research and Involvement and Engagement journal websites.

You can access and read the GRIPP2 checklist paper in The BMJ and view the GRIPP2 reporting guidance page on the EQUATOR Network website. 

Coming soon - an associated paper with further details on the methods and discussing lessons learned from the development of reporting guidelines has recently been accepted for publication in the journal BMJ Open.
