Co-production to Improve Services
The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) is hosting a free two-part webinar called Breaking Down the Barriers to Co-production from 1400-1500 on 5 July.
The webinars are running as part of Co-production Week and are interactive. Co-production Week promotes not only the positive impact of social care services, its users and carers collaborating on service provision and development but also focuses on sharing best practice. Co-production Week has been running for three years and this year again asks you to:
- tweet about co-production by using the hashtag #coproweek
- share stories about it with the SCIE
- take part in the week by writing for the SCIE Co-production Week blog
SCIE’s Co-production Network and SCIE’s Head of Co-production, Pete Fleischmann will be delivering the webinars. These will look at a range of different settings as cases of co-production in local authorities, voluntary organisations and health care. The discussion will examine common problems in collaborating and suggest ways to overcome barriers.
As a webinar participant you will be able to take part through the ‘chatbox’ feature which will give you opportunities to answer questions and vote during the session.
If you would like to book a place on the webinar go to the Eventbrite page Webinar: Breaking Down the Barriers to Co-production. The webinar is also repeated from 1500-1600 on Eventbrite on 5 July so you can also book for that.
Ahead of the webinar the SCIE has also produced a handy guide on co-production entitled Co-production in Social Care: What it is and How to do It which includes practice examples. The guide is free to download.
