    PPI in the AVATAR2 Trial - Alie Phiri, Leonie Richardson and Stephanie Allan

    Effective patient and public involvement (PPI) is crucial to conducting research that meets the needs and values of patients. In this podcast, we hear from a team of researchers and people with lived experience about getting involved in the AVATAR2 trial. This study is investigating the effects of digital avatar therapy in people with psychosis who hear voices. We hear about how PPI makes a difference, what getting involved entails, and how people with lived experience shaped the questions, methods, conduct and analysis of the trials.
