The British Academy of Management (BAM) Conference is one of the largest and most prestigious international events for business and management scholars. Attracting world class researchers from over 50 countries worldwide. 

The award was made by the Public Sector Management track.  The paper entitled “Co-producing healthcare: the case of the patient buddying system” considers the role of patient in the co-production redesign of healthcare services.

Sharon commented: “We were delighted with the award and to be able to share the findings of our research at the conference.  This study has enabled us to extend our thinking around patients’ contribution to redesigning and improving healthcare services.  It is our intention now to empirically test the coproduction model with other patient groups”.
