This article describes the experiences of PPI contributors within a pharmacy practice doctoral research project. This includes practical examples of how PPI contributed to the project and the impact this made. In addition, the PPI contributors and doctoral candidates' reflections are presented along with learning points to support other doctoral researchers planning PPI in their research.
