Learning, Knowing, Doing Series Seminar
Speaker: Dr Roman Kislov, Senior Research Fellow in the University of Manchester and a Visiting Fellow in Queensland University of Technology
The art of compromise: Collaboration between researchers and practitioners to co-produce applied health research
The principle of collaboration is instrumental for ensuring that research makes a difference in the ‘real world’. Within this broader agenda, involving stakeholders and ‘research users’ in the design and implementation of applied health research is widely regarded to be an important part of increasing its impact on the provision of health services. Such ‘co-production’ of research often faces a number of challenges, which arise inevitably from the differing interests, perspectives and needs of the organisations involved.
Drawing on the experience of a large-scale UK-based collaborative research partnership bringing together the NHS, the third sector and the university, this talk discusses how these challenges can be overcome through joint working, negotiation and compromise. It reflects on how such compromises are reached in practice and what (positive and negative) influence they may have on the design, focus and overall impact of applied health research.
Dr Roman Kislov is a Senior Research Fellow in the University of Manchester and a Visiting Fellow in Queensland University of Technology. He conducts qualitative research on the processes and practices of knowledge mobilisation, with a particular interest in communities of practice, intermediary roles, organisational learning and implementation of change. He is currently leading a longitudinal study into the development of knowledge mobilisation strategies over time and a multiple case study of research co-production in multi-professional project teams. He is also a co-investigator on the FLAME (‘Facilitators and Leaders Actively Mobilising Evidence’) project—an international study of nursing facilitation and leadership across four countries (Australia, Canada, Sweden and the UK).
