Exploring the response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
Co-creating healthcare system resilience
Healthcare system resilience is a theory that has emerged over the past five years, that seeks to explore, describe and support health services to adapt and respond to variability in demand and resources. This project aims to explore the role of those who sit just outside of the healthcare system, in supporting the resilience of that system. We want to understand and document what people are doing to support the safety of their health, the health of others, and how people use the healthcare system in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
