Co-Creation Network: supporting communities of practice
We fund and coordinate the Co-Creation Network, supporting health and care Communities of Practice to flourish across the NHS, health and care professionals, academics, service users and the charity sector.
This network warmly welcomes everyone who is interested in learning new ways of working better together, testing and supporting change and exploring the answers to those questions which matter most across our health and social care systems. Anyone with a passion for improving patient care can join, and membership of the Co-Creation Network is free.
The Co-Creation Network is an ever-expanding constellation of Communities of Practice, made up of dedicated health and care professionals, academics and service users connecting to share their knowledge in a safe, open and supportive way.
Communities of Practice (CoPs) are a great way to bring together people from different organisations and walks of life, with different skills and perspectives to approach issues together and allow thinking space.
The Co-Creation Network has a dedicated website for its members to have virtual conversations, share learning and knowledge, save a library of useful, relevant documents and generate new practice that can really make a difference.
It is managed by the Co-Creation Network Support Team. Network-wide events called Basecamps are held twice a year to support members, introduce the CoPs to potential new members and bring in experienced Communities of Practice leaders to give their experience.
