Coproduction of health and wellbeing outcomes: the new paradigm for effective health and social care

Thursday 28 March 2013

This paper explores the common philosophy underpinning different approaches to coproduction and shared decision making in health and social care. We discuss similarities and differences between these two concepts, and some of the ways they are being applied in practice. We recommend that a number of trailblazer sites be created; such sites would commit to implementing a range of coproductive approaches together, taking an integrated portfolio approach to scale up change, challenge how current professionally led health and social care systems are organised, and radically improve health outcomes.
