The study protocol by Conneely et al. (2020), proposes to establish a public and patient involvement (PPI) panel consisting of older adults, family carers, and ageing research academics to address the need to include the perspective of older adults in applied health research. The aim of the study is to describe setting up a PPI panel and to evaluate the impact of membership on all members. The PPI panel meetings will be conducted in the “world café” style and the authors will conduct semi structured interviews after 12 and 24 months. Thereafter, an inductive thematic analysis will be conducted on all available data including workshop and individual interview data.
