“The best teaching is taught by the patient himself”

Sir William Osler

Our aim is to conduct rigorous and systematic, qualitative research into people’s experiences of health and illness and to make this publically available.

In particular, DIPEx International aims to:

  • Conduct research using the DIPEx methodology thus ensuring a high quality evidence-based approach to patient experiences
  • Ensure quality and integrity are maintained according to established criteria outlined by DIPEx International Quality Control Manual
  • Supervise, mentor and train other researchers
  • Raise funds for the continuation and expansion of this research
  • Disseminate research findings via our respective websites, as well as through conferences and peer reviewed publications
  • Promote our work through seminars and conferences to our colleagues and professional associations and through the media to members of the public
