Co-producing with Carers in Health Settings: Invitation to free webinar (1hr)
The Co-Production Network for Wales is hosting a free co-production webinar as part of the Carer Aware project, on Wednesday 3rd November 10:30-11:30am.
Who is it for?
Professionals supporting unpaid carers and working in health settings, both in statutory health organisations, and in third sector roles connected with health - for example carer champions and carer leads. This is an introduction session and no prior knowledge of co-production is required.
What is it about?
Co-production happens when professionals and service users come together to combine their professional and lived experience, to design solutions to intractable challenges in our services and our communities. It is a structured approach to achieving sustainable improvement through valuing the voice of the people we support, alongside that of our professional teams.
We know that co-production still feels like a vague and risky undertaking for many, and is underutilised especially in the health sector; however we need to work to the legislative and strategic context in Wales, and involvement in co-production offers tangible benefits for both service users and professionals.
Through this ‘taster’ webinar, the Co-Production Network for Wales will help you develop your understanding of co-production, when it is relevant, and what benefits it can deliver. The webinar has been designed for those with minimal or no knowledge of co-production, to inform and engage, and to help answer the ‘is co-production for us?’ question.
Spaces are limited so please book your place by following the link.
BOOKING CLOSES on 29th October
A waiting list will be available: if this session fills up and 20+ people register on the waiting list we will create a second offering of the same webinar. If you are interested in the topic but know you can’t make the 3rd November date, please register by selecting a waiting list ticket from the ticket options.
Advance notice: Follow-on training covering the implementation and practice of co-production will be available in December to build on what you learn in the introductory webinar. (Hold the date, Wednesday 1st December). Mentoring and consultancy will be available for a limited number of projects emerging from the implementation training, fully funded through the Carer Aware programme.
