Co-designing health services with older people
We recently undertook a codesign workshop with the Health Alliance in Brisbane North. Close to 100 health professionals, allied health workers, community workers, older people and carers came together to focus on actions to improve the lives of older people. The energy on the day was fantastics, with participants powering through 4 hours of activities to kickstart the Ageing Well Initiative, lead by the Health Alliance, a jointinitiative of the Brisbane North PHN and Brisbane North Hospital and Health Service. The Ageing Revolution worked with the Alliance to plan and facilitate the afternoon of activity. A great approach to building community and changing the narrative, especially the wonderful panel of older people who set the scene for the afternoon and cemented the reasons why everyone came together – to improve health services for older people. So lucky to get to work on projects like this!
