In our latest podcast episode, we discuss co-design in the field of eating disorders and eating disorders research.
Our expert guest is Associate Professor Genevieve Pepin from Deakin University. Genevieve is a researcher and occupational therapist with a passion for mental health, eating disorders and carers. She explains exactly what co-design is and why it is so important.
We will hear from our lived experience guest, Shannon Calvert of Western Australia, who shares her powerful story of recovery after living with an eating disorder for 30 years.
We also talk about the recently launched Australian Eating Disorders Research & Translation Strategy 2021–2031 which was developed using a co-design approach. Both Shannon and Genevieve were on the Advisory Committee for the Strategy. In this episode, they discuss their involvement and their experience of co-design first-hand.
