Want to know more about engagement, participation or involving patients in service design or evaluation? Working in partnership with the Young People’s Health Special Interest Group (YPHSIG), these resources support the Not Just A Phase (2010) guide.
Over 1000 children, young people and family members took part in sessions focused on topics in the State of Child Health report. Their voices, views and emerging themes are covered in this special report looking at poverty, mental health, communication, PSHE , LGBT and children’s rights.
This guidance offers advice and tips, much of which comes directly from children and young people that use the services, about how they would like to be involved in specialised commissioning procedures.
The case studies below were collated for the RCPCH Annual Conference 2017 to provide examples of engagement practice across the UK. They are from a range of settings and organisations including health, acute, community and voluntary sector.
This resource booklet will give you a shared understanding and agreement for best practice when involving children, young people and their families in your committees, including what is needed in order to have a meaningful experience as a lay representative.
