Event description

Description

The current era of healthcare improvement is characterised by participation and a view that co-production and variants such as experience-based co-design create public and private value.

Yet, for all the attention on public participation in improvement, our knowledge about the sustained impacts, systems change and, improvements or otherwise to individual health outcomes remains somewhat limited. This is particularly the case in mental health contexts.




The CORE study was a four-year program of work (2013-2017) that tested the effectiveness of a peer designed and delivered model for service improvement called mental health experience co-design. We tested if this intervention, aimed to increase recovery-orientation of services, would improve psychosocial recovery for people living with severe mental illnesses. The primary outcome was the Revised Recovery Assessment Score (RAS-R). A stepped wedge cluster randomised controlled trial design was used with follow-up every nine months (baseline, 9, 18 and 27 months). Qualitative and quantitative data were contributed by 287 service users, 61 carers and 135 staff. Nearly half of the cohort 133/287 (46%) took part in the intervention.

This presentation explores the question of public and private value in systems re-design and healthcare improvement using co-production methods and re-evaluates the participation paradox in light of the study findings.

Presented by Associate Professor Victoria Palmer, University of Melbourne




About the speaker

Associate Professor Victoria Palmer completed her PhD in applied ethics and cooperative practices. In this seminar, Victoria will share the Australasian Academic Association for Primary Care Distinguished Paper to re-evaluate the participation paradox in healthcare improvement and the question of individual and system value as it applies in mental health experience co-design.

Victoria leads the integrated mental health research program in The Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne and a vibrant co-design living lab program of over 500 people with lived-experience of mental health.

The co-design lab is an innovation hub to bring people, researchers, policy makers, industry and designers together to develop research priorities, methods, prototype interventions and conduct translational activities.

Victoria has examined participatory approaches in mental health systems re-design for the past 15 years. She currently leads a nationally funded randomised controlled trial to test a coproduced intervention Assertive Care to reduce cardiovascular risk in people living with severe mental illness (2017-2022).
