Engagement, Co-production, and Collaborative Meaning-Making: Collaboration in Qualitative Health Research
Hosted by the Qualitative Health Research Network (QHRN) with support from the Wellcome Trust
In recent years, there have been increasing calls for collaboration between academia and the wider healthcare community in health research. This is largely driven by efforts to engage the public in the “co-production” of evidence-based healthcare and healthcare decision-making, as well as penetrate borders between disciplines. Engaging all stakeholders in health care research is now a key requirement of funding bodies and the Research Excellence Framework.
