This briefing note is to inform you that the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges intends to update its report on lay involvement in revalidation later this year and would value your contribution to the updating exercise. The last version was published in December 2017. Please see lay-involvement-in-revalidation The aim of the report is to share examples of patient and public involvement in revalidation, recognising the important contribution it can make to revalidation processes and to encourage organisations to increase the opportunities for lay involvement. The first report on lay involvement was produced in 2016 and was subsequently updated, based on a survey conducted during the summer/autumn of 2017, which again collected information on lay involvement in revalidation activities at national, regional and local level.
The report contains many different examples of lay involvement, across different types of health organisations. This updating exercise will seek information on any changes to the existing examples, in addition to seeking new examples to add to the report.
This briefing note is to make Responsible Officers/Designated Bodies and other revalidation bodies aware of the survey timetable and when we will be asking for up to date information on lay involvement initiatives/developments.
