This approach can bring people together to ensure that multiple perspectives are reflected in the design, delivery and evaluation of services.

Through our collaboration with Ko Awatea, we have delivered co-design programmes in all regions. Read more about the many completed case studies below.

We have developed a suite of free e-learning courses for co-design that are available to all health care professionals. To find out more about these modules, click here. To access the Learn Online platform, please  click here.

Defining co-design

Co-design is often used as an umbrella term for participatory, co-creation and open design processes. Key components of a co-design process should involve users and staff in designing solutions, and design decisions should only be made after feedback is gathered (Ko Awatea 2022).
