A co-constructed implementation path of active involvement practices in a context of integrated care: the experience of a participatory research with the ASUGI of Trieste
Un percorso co-costruito di implementazione di pratiche di coinvolgimento attivo in un contesto di cure integrate: l’esperienza di ricerca partecipativa con l’ASUGI di Trieste
Introduction: In this article we can find the report of the main phases of the collaboration between ASUGI and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan from 2015 to today.
Methods: During these years, a path of activation and implementation of engagement practices within ASUGI has been developed, from basic training on the tools for monitoring and supporting engagement to the selection of a group of operators involved in a participatory path as “trainers to trainers”, up to the grafting of engagement practices within the individual patient education paths in the different sectors of ASUGI.
Results and Conclusions: This contribution is an exemplifying scenario that can be useful for other health structures that want to undertake a similar path.
