X4: Co-producing virtually through a crisis: It’s possible and productive – our lessons learned

Understanding what matters to people is fundamental to co-producing improvements, yet in times of crisis we revert to command and control, saying this is too difficult.

In this video, people with lived experience will share how they have shaped improvements in partnership with clinicians during the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes at a national level coproducing the musculoskeletal restoration of services plan and how ‘Patient Partners’ in a local provider have shaped services.
