QSIG Midday Talk: Grace Lavelle

21 Mar 2022, 12:00 to 13:00
Online - Zoom

In this session, Grace Lavelle (Research Fellow in the Department of Psychological Medicine) presents a talk about Co-Production of an Online Peer Support Platform. Grace has provided this outline:

"I am delighted to present our online peer support co-production work which has been funded by King’s Health Partners and Impact on Urban Health, through their Multiple Long-Term Conditions Challenge Fund. We think that better access to online peer support could help people with multiple long-term conditions (LTC) live happier, healthier lives. The aim of our work is to co-produce an online psychoeducation and peer support platform for people living with LTC experiencing subthreshold depression, with a view to intervening early and preventing development of comorbid major depression in this at-risk population.

We are proud to be working as a large team that includes research advisory group members, a patient and public participatory design panel, external design agencies, KCL researchers and academics, KCL clinicians, and a co-investigator with lived experience. Throughout the project so far, we have followed a process called ‘Intervention Mapping’, using a co-production approach. I hope to share our experiences to date, as well as the exciting plans we have to develop this work further."

There will be a presentation and time for questions and discussion after.
