Co-production for Health Consumers

Co-production or co-design are terms that are used to describe the collaboration between consumers and health services to design better healthcare. How can consumers work more effectively in collaboration with their health service to make it better for everyone?

Health Issues Centre is offering a three-hour workshop on co-production for consumers and community members.

What is this workshop for?
It is important that consumers are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to work in collaboration with health and community service organisations. This workshop provides information and practical tips for consumers to work in collaboration with health services.

What will be covered?
This workshop will cover definitions, benefits and principles of co-production, tools for co-designing projects, do's and don'ts of co-production, how to develop and implement co-production projects, and how to monitor and evaluate co-production projects.

When is the workshop?
The workshop will take place on Tuesday, 13 June from 9:30am – 12:30pm.

Morning tea will be provided.

How much is the workshop?
The workshop is $350 for individuals, but we also offer group discounts.

This training is also available for groups of more than 10 participants at your health and community service location. The group session is costed as group fee, plus travel costs.

Ideally, health or community services should cover the costs associated with the training course.
