Abstract

This paper describes involving patients and the public in nursing research and discusses the challenges and opportunities in adopting this approach during a doctoral training programme. The paper summarises patient engagement initiatives across a number of European countries, draws on some key literature and critically reflects on the perspectives of doctoral students undertaking gerontological nursing research in Europe. It concludes with a number of recommendations on how to include older people as active partners in doctoral nursing research.
