The SynEnergy of Coproduction and Education: Teaching health professionals and patients to coproduce health and social service

The shift to coproduction requires new ways of thinking about health and health care services. Those already in practice need to understand and integrate this new paradigm into their daily work. Future health professionals need to be prepared to practice in a new way. This interactive workshop will explore our experiences in curriculum development and delivery with several different target audiences. We will briefly summarize the educational theories that underpin our efforts to develop and implement a coproduction curriculum, report on a formative assessment conducted with learners, and make recommendations for creating an environment for learning how health professionals can coproduce health and healthcare with patients. Particpants will use this background to develop practical ideas to advance the curriculum across a variety of disciplines and professions.
