This Special Interest Group (SIG) aims to facilitate collaboration across sectors and between Countries to enhance our understanding, adoption and evaluation of Self management and Co-production.
This SIG will build upon the collaboration fostered by the UK’s first Four Nations Summit on Self Management, hosted by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland in October 2017. The summit brought together a collective of 50 leaders from across the United Kingdom – reflecting the diversity of perspectives, disciplines and sectors which make up the health and care systems of the UK – to consider “what needs to be done in order that everyone is able to self manage on their terms?”
The SIG is for people with lived experience, practitioners, managers, researchers, students, policy makers and health economists engaged in planning, designing, delivering and evaluating Self management and Co-production principles and approaches to engage, empower and enable people centred integrated care in different health and care systems.
The SIG will provide a platform for members to share implementation experience, highlight examples of good practice, signpost practical resources, and agree and collaborate on research, education and evaluation priorities for self management and coproduction. Members will shape the scope of SIG activities and outputs. These may include:
Topics for 2018 – 2020 Options for the initial focus of the SIG include:
