LKD Seminar: The art of compromise: Collaboration between researchers and practitioners to co-produce applied health research

Speaker: Roman Kislov, University of Manchester

Event details

Involving stakeholders and ‘research users’ in the design and implementation of applied health research is widely regarded as important. Such ‘co-production’ can be challenging because of the contrasting interests, perspectives, and needs of those involved. Drawing on experience of a large-scale UK-based collaborative research partnership across the NHS, third sector, and university, Roman will discuss how these challenges can be overcome through joint working, negotiation, and compromise and reflect on how such compromises influence the design, focus, and overall impact of applied health research.

Dr Roman Kislov is Senior Research Fellow in the University of Manchester and a Visiting Fellow in Queensland University of Technology. He conducts qualitative research on the processes and practices of knowledge mobilisation with a particular interest in communities of practice, intermediary roles, organisational learning, and implementation of change.
