Co-production is a transformative approach used to create shared research, policy and practice in mental health and social care which recognises the invaluable knowledge and expertise of people who use services. In this presentation Nicky Lambert will talk about:

  • What coproduction is … and importantly what it isn’t!
  • The challenges and opportunities it presents, and it’s importance in ensuring the quality of research,  teaching and practice in mental health and social care.
  • And she will draw on some recent examples and take questions
