Dr Annette Boaz

Dr Boaz has recently published, with colleagues, from a National Institute of Health Research funded study investigating an accelerated form of experience-based co-design (EBCD), a type of participatory action research in which patients and staff work together to improve the quality of health services; to observe how acceleration affected the process and outcomes of the intervention. It was tested in intensive care and lung cancer in two English National Health Service (NHS) hospitals. The paper called Using a national archive of patient experience narratives to promote local patient-centered quality improvement: an ethnographic process evaluation of ‘accelerated’ experience-based co-design” is published in the Journal of Health Services Research & Policy.
