Table 2 Summary of Workshop Aims and Activities

From: Evaluating stakeholder involvement in building a decision support tool for NHS health checks: co-producing the WorkHORSE study

Workshop Aims Activity
1 • build a mutual working relationship between stakeholders and the research team;
• ensure an understanding of the health checks process for scenario building
• generate rich and valuable interaction to inform model development
Activity 1: Groupwork to identify stakeholder’s expectations of the WorkHORSE health checks project and identify what is working well and not so well and future hopes for the NHS HCP (heterogeneous grouping)
Activity 2: Groupwork to elicit what features/specifications will make WorkHORSE a useful tool for the stakeholders (homogenous grouping)
2 • develop the priorities for the model functionality
• explore how alternative implementations of health checks could be modelled through the input parameters of the tool
• clear specification on outputs/visualisations in terms of immediate accessibility required by stakeholders
Activity 1: Groupwork to enable stakeholders to consider alternative HC implementations and practice modelling these implementations leading to a blueprint for co-produced scenario(s) (heterogeneous grouping)
Activity 2: Groupwork to rank the importance of model outputs and visualisations which will make WorkHORSE a useful tool for stakeholders (homogenous grouping)
3 • focus on the design and co-production of realistic model scenarios (previously raised by stakeholders)
• explore model outputs and confirm their usefulness
Activity 1: Groupwork to enable stakeholders to discuss and co-produce realistic model scenarios interpret model outputs and confirm their usefulness (heterogeneous grouping)
Activity 2: Groupwork to explore the importance of model outputs and visualisations which will make WorkHORSE a useful tool for stakeholders (heterogeneous grouping)
4 • dissemination and demonstration of the decision support tool Stakeholder demonstation of using the model and interpretation of outputs (heterogeneous grouping)
