Is co-design a good fit for me?
If you can answer yes to the following, co-design might be the right approach for you:
- Will we value the experiences of people who use and deliver health services equally?
- Can we commit to making decisions together with people with lived experience, every step of the way?
- Will we value and prioritise cultural diversity in our partnership?
If your team is facing limitations to consumers and staff co-leading every aspect of your project equally, you can still apply approaches and principles of co-design to parts of your work and use alternative partnership approaches elsewhere.
Watch our Introduction to co-design video.
Create a consumer partnership plan to outline an approach that best meets your needs.
