Paul works in a quiet corner in the library. He has been a student of the improvement of healthcare services for the past five decades. As a lifelong learner, he has had the privilege of many roles in many settings with many colleagues. His focus today is the coproduction of healthcare service and some of its implications.

The podcasts in “The Power of Coproduction” were made with the help of an international development team: Joy McAvoy, Zach Nelson, Madge Kaplan, Andrea Resmini and Theresa Tremmel Morphew. They were enabled by an international network of friends, learners and colleagues who have shared their insights and stories.

They are made available with the benefit of communication technology and internet homes at the International Coproduction of Health Network (ICoHN) at the Jönköping Academy for the Improvement of Health and Welfare in Jönköping University in Sweden and The Coproduction Laboratory in The Dartmouth Institute of Health Policy and Clinical Practice in the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College in the US.
