The principle of collaboration, ‘the action of working with someone to produce something’, 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 integrated care. 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 operating at the interface of primary and secondary care, this talk explores how these challenges can be overcome through joint working, discussion and compromise. It reflects on how such compromises are reached in practice and what influence they may have on the design, focus and overall impact of applied health research.
