Breakfast at SSCY
Finding ways to understand the experiences of families and use these experiences to direct research and health care are important priorities. Living labs are a new approach to doing and sharing research in collaboration with families, but up until recently, have not been explored or developed in child health. In 2019, a team of researchers and family members partnered with SSCY to start developing a living lab to meet these objectives. This presentation will introduce the innovative approach of living labs including how they have historically been used and how it is being developed to promote family-centered research and care for children with development difference, their families, and care providers.
- To gain an understanding of living labs, including what they are, and how they have been understood, evaluated, and applied in health care contexts.
- To analyze knowledge translation and how living labs can be used to support integrated, family-centered knowledge translation in child health.
- To discuss living labs in relation to pediatric development and rehabilitation research at SSCY, including progress and findings from two recent co-design research studies.
