In recent years, co-creation (or co-production) with people with lived experience and care partners has become a prominent aspect of the research landscape and a growing expectation of research funders. There is a lot of variation in the degree to which research teams collaborate with people with lived experience and care partners.
In this session, Dr. Jennifer Baumbusch will share experiences from a co-creation project conducted in long-term care homes. As part of a knowledge-to-action project, family caregivers were integral team members who helped to develop and deliver a workshop series for family members of residents. Jennifer will talk about the successes and lessons learnt in this experience. She will also share strategies for successful co-creation based on this project.
