Knowledge mobilisation was nominated as a theme in our first Forum discussions and following subsequent consultation we have decided our 2021 focus is co-production. Our objective is to develop shared outputs such as papers and resources. Meeting information is available in our calendar.
The co-production initiative was launched in March with a stimulating presentation from Professor Nick Mays of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and an interesting discussion with participants to begin identifying critical issues to improve practice in co-production.
Participants identified some resources that are useful when engaging in co-production:
