April’s #OTalk Research is being hosted by Claire Ballinger and Tina Coldham and supported Lynne Goodacre from the #OTalk Research team.
COPRODUCTION IN RESEARCH
There has been a lot of talk in recent years about the importance of patient and public involvement in research, with evidence that such involvement makes research more accessible, meaningful and successful.
Some go further and argue that coproduction or cocreation of research must be the way forward if we are to truly focus on service users’ understandings, perspectives and priorities. As OTs, this has a synergy with our client centred practice. However, those new to research and coproduction might be wondering how it might work, how to ‘do’ it, and perhaps whether it is even possible!
In our OTalk we hope to discuss what coproduction means, hear from people who have experience of coproduction in research about what it is like, and share some ideas about how to work successfully together.
We offer the following questions as a basis for reflection and discussion:
1. What do we understand by coproduction in health research?
2. Why might coproduction in research be useful? For whom/what?
3. Has anyone had experience of coproduction health research? What was it like.
4. What were the highlights and surprises? Was there anything that concerned you or you wish had been done differently?
5. What principles, resources or tips could we share to guide coproduction?
