Codesign, coproduction. We have been wanting this for so long. I think we potentially thought we would get this through “consumer participation” which has been tokenistic, hit and miss. Let’s hope our new buzz words move us from rhetoric to reality where we are the driver’s of our own care rather than submissive recipients of the traditional paternalistic “do as we say, compliance” medical model.
Thank you Graham for another “straight to the guts” reflection.
