Embedding children and young people’s participation in health services and research – UCLan seminar May 2014

Last month I was invited, along with Dan Moxon from People, Dialogue and Change, to present at a one of the regular seminars organised by the UCLan Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation.

The seminar was on children and young people’s participation in health services and research (see flyer:12 May Louca Mai Dan Moxon POSTER). Both Dan and I discussed the work we’re doing in this area and, although a select audience, then had some really interesting discussions with those who attended. The recording of the event can be found here.

In my presentation I explored emerging findings from my research on what it means ‘embed’ children and young people’s participation in health services and research, including reflecting on learning from workshops in July and October last year:

Dan then went on to discuss some of the great work he’s doing in this area:

The discussions that followed raised some really interesting issues, which will inform the next phase of this work. Many thanks to Nigel Thomas and UCLan for hosting. It also very much like the start of a conversation, which you’re very welcome to join via this blog if you couldn’t make it on the day.
