Working with patients in co-design
If patients and carers are involved in the design and delivery of tools and approaches that will be of most value to them, they are more likely to use them.
Co-design – or co-production – is a way of working where decision-makers and citizens or patients work together to create a decision, approach or service that best meets all their different needs and perspectives. The approach is value-driven and built on the principle thta those affected by the decision, approach or service are those best qualified to help design it.
This co-design approach was tested with a number of CCG Early Adopter and Regional Action sites – the practical learning from this work is shared below:
Includes guidance on establishing a co-design approach to developing the future model of patient-centric self-management support plus development materials, templates and examples to support each element of the process.
