The Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing is please to invite abstracts for its 2018 conference which will be held jointly with the COMMUNE (Co-produced Mental Health Nurse Education) project. Conference booking is now open.
The theme of the conference is: ‘Informing mental health nursing practice, education, and research through co production’.
There has been growing interest in co-production in the past decade, particularly in the context of promoting partnerships between governments, services, service users and communities in the commissioning and development of health and community services. A co-production approach sees service users /consumers involved in, or leading, defining the problem, designing and delivering the solution, and evaluating the outcome, either with professionals or independently (Roper, Grey & Cadogan 2018).
Attendance at the conference is free.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
Prof Brenda Happell
