Community of Practice
Collaborate with like-minded professionals to improve health, quality, and research
A community of practice is a “group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.” Communities might focus on scholarly goals (developing the field), practical goals (sharing ideas about practice), open-ended conversations, or specific projects.
The International Coproduction Health Network (ICoHN) includes a set of communities of practice that consist of interested healthcare professionals, patients and family members, and established experts in service coproduction. Each community’s work includes active testing and evaluation related to its theme. Findings will be publicly documented and published.
A new community of practice is forming around how to place coproduction at the heart of a learning health system. This community of practice will explore the intersection of front-line care experiences with the development of an information commons that can guide care, quality improvement, and development of knowledge.
Join us as we:
- Identify a group of people interested in being part of this community of practice
- Develop a charter, including key focus areas, tasks, and measures of success
- Establish expectations for group participation and partnership strategies (how regularly to meet, how to meet, what types of information to share)
- Discover and explore ways of implementing learning health systems that support the coproduction in diverse settings through the redesign of data and workflows
