Community Care;4/16/2009, Issue 1766, p26
The article presents a description of the approach of co-production in adult social services in Great Britain. This approach involves dialogue and negotiation between people who use services and the service provider. Co-production can be organised into three stages, namely compliance, support and transformation. Compliance involves collaboration to achieve results, whereas support involves alliance to co-produce care services. At the transformation stage, the service user becomes an expert.
