Participant in Research Experience Survey

(formally Patient Research Experience Survey)

What is it?

The Participant in Research Experience Survey (PRES) has been developed by the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (CRN) Coordinating Centre.

It measures the experiences of participants in health and social care research.

Why do we deliver PRES?

Each year, we ask participants to complete the PRES to understand their experiences of research so that we can improve our delivery of research in the future and ensure a positive research experience for participants.

Feedback also helps us to understand what we are doing well, and we can celebrate and share these successes with research staff.

PRES is also one of the means by which the impact of the Clinical Research Network is evaluated, and it is vital that as a Partner Organisation we contribute to this initiative.
