Event description

Description

Co-production, commissioners and collective knowledge brokering: how an embedded team made a difference

Research is rarely informed by policy-making and policy-making rarely draws on research. To address this, as part of a NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship, Dr Lesley Wye led a knowledge brokering team of researchers and local healthcare commissioners who were embedded in each other's organisations. The aim of the team was to facilitate commissioner-researcher collaborations, ideally leading to the co-production of more relevant research bids and commissioner-led service evaluations. This presentation will cover the rationale behind setting the team up, provide examples of the work carried out, discuss what worked (and what didn't) and talk about its impact.
