Co-creation involves a transdisciplinary team which has to include end users and professionals who have a “formal responsibility” in the process. It is based on shared understanding of a situation, creation of a shared language, dialog, combination and mutualization of skills and interdependence and involves shared negotiation of goals. The underlying objective of the process is to initiate a process of change leading to a new prosperity.
A great variety of people involved in delivering welfare services will benefit from using co-creation in their work.
The course has been designed so that people gain the most by attending all 4 days. We therefore recommend that people do not miss course days. Those that have attended the course before have found it more beneficial to build their knowledge up over the course to apply it throughout the course.

In situations where course days have been missed by an attendee, we suggest the facilitator/attendees ensure that people are updated on lessons learned from missed sessions. See our Top Tips for some ways to address this.
