Abstract

Background There is increasing recognition of the need to include people living with dementia to inform the research process. While the literature about patient and public involvement (PPI) in research is extensive, particularly in the UK, fewer papers report on PPI in doctoral research. Aim The article will reflect on establishing an advisory group for a doctoral study, exploring the opportunities and challenges associated with including people living with dementia. Discussion The practicalities of establishing an advisory group, the challenges of being a novice researcher, the long-term commitment to PPI, the overall approach to PPI and ethical considerations are discussed. Conclusion Establishing an advisory group for doctoral research can enhance the quality of the study.
