Watch the Recording: Coproducing Healthcare Service and its improvement - Exploring the relevant science-informed practice Featured


About the session
This is the fourth session offering an overview of the knowledge that underpins the coproduction of healthcare service. This session focuses on developing an understanding of the third stream of knowledge: “science-informed practice” that must be developed and used to coproduce healthcare services. The session includes the exploration of a case in Ghana and the U.S. that helps us understand the diversity of science disciplines and methods. A helpful frame of reference is introduced and used.


Intended Audience:
The webinar is intended for those seeking a brief overview of the underpinning streams of knowledge that regularly support the coproduction of healthcare service and its improvement. Healthcare professionals, improvers, and system designers will be interested.

Learning Objectives:
a) To introduce four interrelated streams of knowledge that underpin the coproduction of healthcare service;
b) To explore the “as is” system that must be navigated in the work of coproducing healthcare service;
c) To contextualize the coproduction of better health in the larger framework of improving the quality of healthcare today.
