Up-skilling Experts by Experience for Involvement in Co-Production in Research

Session convener: Mick Hill, Northumbria University

In this session Toby Brandon and several experts-by-experience (EBE) co-researchers will lead discussion on the benefits of meaningful (as opposed to tokenistic) service-user involvement before presenting the details of a researcher development programme aimed at catalysing existing EBE research skills and implemented across several UK universities. The session will also address the practical difficulties involved in meaningful co-production - as well as values-based and philosophical tensions inherent in this approach..
