Co-Production & Collaboration:
The Positive Way forward! Workshops 2022

21 April 2022

We are inviting you to attend one of the following workshops to discuss working with people with Complex Needs and a more person-centred approach to work across all services.

Following the successful workshop in Bude, 10 more place-based workshops will be delivered across the County between 11am – 2pm during May and June.

We will be promoting our Complex Needs Delivery Plan, learning about Co-production and highlighting the differences in approach agreed by the Joint Commissioning Team to enable all services to work together in a truly person-centred way using the principles of the Human Learning System.

Co-production is a way of working that involves people who use health and care services, carers and communities coming together with service providers in equal partnership; and which engages groups of people at the earliest stages of service design, development and evaluation. Co-production acknowledges that people with ‘lived experience’ of a particular condition are often best placed to advise on what support and services will make a positive difference to their lives.
Done well, co-production helps to ground discussions in reality, and to maintain a person-centred perspective. It’s exciting and we are lucky in Cornwall to have several “Experts by Experience” to help us with this.
Co-production is part of a range of approaches that includes citizen involvement, participation, engagement and consultation. It is a cornerstone of self-care, of person-centred care and of health-coaching approaches.

Human Learning Systems

Human Learning Systems is a fairly new approach to looking at the whole system that surrounds a person with complex needs – their family, friends, interests, assets, challenges and other services – maintaining at all times a focus on the individual and forming a network of care and support firmly centred on them and their needs. It really is more exciting than it sounds, and Service Users and Experts by Experience love it!
The sessions will be delivered by Experts by Experience, members of the Complex Needs Team and other guests and we hope that you will want to join us as we promote this very positive, person-centred approach to collaborative working.
