6th Public & Patient Involvement workshop with Young Person Advisory Group at GOSH

Lisa Pfaffenrath & Stefan Guldin

Our 6th YPAG session took place on November 25, 2023, with a total of 23 YPAG members in attendance. The ChromaDose PPI team was represented by Dr. Alaric Taylor, Dr. Jugal Suthar, Lisa Pfaffenrath, and Prof. Stefan Guldin. The main objective of this session was to seek feedback from the YPAG on the ChromaDose technology concerning its design and interface, real-world use, and device personalization, which were discussed in three separate breakout rooms.


We designed a variety of interactive online activities, including classifying cards, drawing, brainstorming with post-it notes, and voting, to address several important topics for the ChromaDose team, including:

Breakout Room 1 (Design and Interface):

  • What are the YPAG members' thoughts on our current design, and how would they prioritize certain device features?


Breakout Room 2 (Real World Use):

  • What are the potential issues that could arise during device use on the ward?

  • What features are crucial / less important /unnecessary for the patient app currently in development?


Breakout Room 3 (Personalisation):

  • How can we give the device an identity so that staff can easily distinguish each machine, and patients can establish a personal connection?

As usual, we received a wealth of feedback and left the session with numerous new ideas and suggestions for implementation.


This marked our final session, and we expressed our gratitude to the YPAG members for their outstanding contributions over the past 42 months, spanning a total of 7 workshops (including one prior to project commencement) and individual online consultations. We are currently in the process of drafting a manuscript detailing our developed methodologies and the productive outcomes of our Public and Patient Involvement work during the ChromaDose project, which has also been presented at three international conferences and recognized by the NIHR as a case of best practice.


The fruitful collaboration with the YPAGs and their invaluable input has enabled us to achieve co-creation in various aspects of our work, ultimately leading to the development of a more effective and widely accepted technology.
