The overall study aim is to explore, enhance and measure the value of co-production for improving the health and social care of citizens.

Our four research objectives are:

Measurements to develop, test and establish robust measures of co-production processes and of the outcomes of co-production for participants and wider constituencies at different system levels

Mechanisms to study the social processes and organisational forms that enable inclusive and reciprocal co-production across the health and social care sectors

Management to explore effective systems and styles of leadership for co-production

Model to develop explanatory models and other outputs based on a synthesis of existing evidence, analysis of our case studies and our findings in relation to 1-3 above in order to help enhance future co-production initiatives
