Abstract
Health research is often regarded as fragmented, competitive and highly specialized. However, there is often little effective communication and consultation between producers of health research and end users. Given this, a Consumer Participation and Community Engagement Framework was adopted by the Waitemata District Health Board. Local research also indicated that consumer and provider perspectives create opportunities for innovation and new co-developed knowledge. Accordingly, a mentored group was established. A long term outcome has been promoting sustainable and effective co-design for better health. Thus an innovative programme was established to co-create capacity building for consumers and professionals alike.
