Co-CReating Innovation Solutions for Health (CRISH) is an original two-day multidisciplinary course that aims to bring together health sector members, including patients, to support the co-creation of innovative research, policies, products or services that will promote and improve health. The course is delivered by EIT (European Institute of innovation & Technology) Health, of which Imperial College is a partner.
Attendees will gain knowledge, skills and tools on how to co-create projects using a variety of methods, such as design thinking (needs assessments and stakeholder mapping), Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) (involving all project stakeholders including at a systems level), and patient and public involvement (PPI) within research.
The next CRISH course will be held in London (Eastbource Terrace, Paddington) on 21 and 22 November 2017 – for more information, including the agenda (order subject to change), view the brochure here.
This opportunity is open to researchers, healthcare professionals and patients and is completely free with lunch and refreshments provided so please circulate to anyone you think may be interested. Attendees will ideally have a project on which they wish to work (this could be an existing project or one that is yet to start) and another team member to come with them (although this isn’t mandatory).
To attend, please complete the registration form on the CRISH academy registration page – numbers are limited and registration closes on 14th November so please register asap.
