The next key project for Fighting Blindness is ensuring the inclusion of the patient voice in setting priorities for the organisational research strategy. The research strategy will pave the direction of focus for the organisation in the coming years. As a patient-led organisation we need to ensure that the strategy priorities and activities are reflective of our member’s priorities and lived experiences. In the near future, Fighting Blindness will ask our members to complete a survey to assist with identifying perspectives and priorities of those living with sight loss. The results of this survey will help guide us as to how best to utilise them so that we are funding research that is most in line with the views and needs of our community here in Ireland.
