    Health expectations : an international journal of public participation in health care and health policy
  • 2021
The study aimed to understand how patients should be actively involved in an LHS, and explored the acceptability of being ‘data donors’ rather than considering patients as active contributors.
Co-Creation Approach with Action-Oriented Research Methods to Strengthen “Krachtvoer”; A School-Based Programme to Enhance Healthy Nutrition in Adolescents
This paper elaborates on the way of dealing with the dynamic implementation context of the educational programme “Krachtvoer” (ENG: “Power food”) for prevocational schools, how the programme can be adapted to each unique implementation context, and how it can be progressively kept up to date.
Co-production practice and future research priorities in United Kingdom-funded applied health research: a scoping review
This scoping review argues for accepting the diversity in approaches to co-production, calls on researchers to be clearer in their reporting of these approaches, and makes suggestions for what researchers should record.


Achieving Research Impact Through Co‐creation in Community‐Based Health Services: Literature Review and Case Study
Co-creation models have high potential for societal impact but depend critically on key success principles, and impact metrics must reflect the dynamic nature and complex interdependencies of health research systems and address processes as well as outcomes.
‘Collective making’ as knowledge mobilisation: the contribution of participatory design in the co-creation of knowledge in healthcare
This discussion paper describes how collective making creates the right ‘conditions’ for knowledge to be mobilised particularly addressing issues relating to stakeholder relationships, and puts this blended knowledge to practical use allowing stakeholders to learn about the practical implications of knowledge use and to collectively create actionable products.
"Seeing" the Difference: The Importance of Visibility and Action as a Mark of "Authenticity" in Co-production
Commentary suggests that ‘authentic’ co-production involves processes where participants can ‘see’ the difference that they have made within the project and beyond and reinforces the notion that maintaining collaboration requires time, flexible resources, blurring of knowledge producer-user boundaries, and leaders who promote epistemological tolerance and methodological exploration.
Evidence based guidelines or collectively constructed “mindlines?” Ethnographic study of knowledge management in primary care
Clinicians rarely accessed and used explicit evidence from research or other sources directly, but relied on “mindlines”—collectively reinforced, internalised, tacit guidelines—to derive individual and collective healthcare decisions.
Mode 2 society and the emergence of context-sensitive science
The notion of context-sensitive science is put forward as a way to approach what might be meant by interactive social science. Universities are now operating in a social environment which values
Making sense of implementation theories, models and frameworks
  • P. Nilsen

    Implementation Science
  • 2015
A taxonomy that distinguishes between different categories of theories, models and frameworks in implementation science is proposed to facilitate appropriate selection and application of relevant approaches in implementation research and practice and to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue among implementation researchers.
The New Production of Knowledge: The Dynamics of Science and Research in Contemporary Societies
In this provocative and broad-ranging work, a distinguished team of authors argues that the ways in which knowledge — scientific, social and cultural — is produced are undergoing fundamental changes
Weight gain after a stroke : the issue and control
Care and information provided to stroke patients is restricted by pathways, availability of specialist support and current funding cuts to community based services, and how nurses in acute and community settings can assess and facilitate patients in preventing and reducing weight gain in patients following stroke is reflected.
Physical Activity and Exercise Recommendations for Stroke Survivors: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
It is recommended that physical activity and exercise prescription should be incorporated into the management of stroke survivors and the promotion of physical activity should emphasize low- to moderate-intensity aerobic activity, muscle-strengthening activity, reduction of sedentary behavior, and risk management for secondary prevention of stroke.
