CRISH - Co-CReating Innovative Solutions for Health

Uploaded by RRI Tools on 30 October 2017



From 01/01/2016 to present

What’s CRISH

CRISH  main objective is to bring together key stakeholders of the health sectors, including patients, who will learn to co-create innovative processes, products or services that will promote/improve the health of populations through the identification of unmet needs.

CRISH is an original short course that will provide knowledge, skills and tools on patient experience methodology (XPA), responsible research and innovation components (RRI), entrepreneurship elements (ENT) and reciprocity and co-design methods (RcD) to a variety of health stakeholders.

CRISH is a multidisciplinary course aiming at fostering a better collaboration among disciplines and specialties in order to jointly anticipate and address emerging trends on health and ageing.

By actively involving patient & citizens, we will “promote healthy living”. CRISH will contribute to improving health literacy by working with end-users. As up to 60% of elderly population is suffering from two or more chronic diseases, we will pay special attention to chronically ill patients and older citizens to contribute to “supporting active ageing”. We will train health professionals, home caregivers & researchers in identifying, together with patients, critical points for future research, re-design of clinical services through the patient experience methodology, and identify ideas in order to pursue the development of innovative solutions. This will significantly contribute to “improving healthcare”.
CRISH Learning outcomes

The learning outcomes (LO) per participant group are:

  • SOs/Patients: pro-actively engage with health professionals & entrepreneurs. LO: health literacy increased & better knowledge on health system.
  • Healthcare professionals: implement the XPA in day-to-day practice. LO: stimulate patient centred care and increase of innovative solutions to improve healthcare/services delivery.
  • Researchers: integrate RRI components within projects. LO: conduct research in a more inclusive manner.
  • Managers: avoid waste and incentivise best practices (incentives for results and not only for processes). LO: increase the “value for money” concept and their investment capacity in healthcare innovations.
  • Entrepreneurs: maximise the chance of success for innovations. LO: acquire necessary skills to team up with health professionals and end users to develop more inclusive and responsive innovativeness.
  • Ethics Committees: incorporate patient/citizens views in their decisions. LO: strengthen the role and scope of action of EC by implementing RRI and XPA elements within research protocols and healthcare decisions.
