Place of publication:

This guidance identifies some key principles and features involved in co-producing a research project and suggests ways to put them into practice. Co-producing research involves researchers, practitioners and the public working together from the start to the end of the project, including the generation of knowledge. Key principles identified include: sharing power; including all perspectives and skills; respecting and valuing the knowledge of all involved; reciprocity; and building and maintaining relationships. The guide will be relevant for public, researchers and health and social care practitioners and has a focus on co-producing research projects and how co-producing relates to public involvement in health and social care research. .
