Patients and Families as Coproducers of Safe and Reliable Outcomes

  • Helen Haskell
  • Tanya Lord


The role of patients has changed over the years to involve much more participation in their own care as well as new roles as advisors within healthcare organizations. Coproduction in healthcare—the active partnership of patients with providers in the pursuit of good health—is the next step in the natural evolution of patient engagement and patient-centered care. This chapter examines the history and potential of effective coproduction as a strategy to improve patient safety and quality in surgery at both a macro and micro level.
