Maybe you've just started to find your way around the new site?
And maybe you've just discovered the inner workings of the POCA department circles via the new Fishbowl forum?
You've boned up on multi-stakeholer cooperatives perhaps? Nahhh.
That's okay, we're all going to figure out how to do this together…
and one of the best ways to learn about doing something is to do it. It's like dancing. This next part of the dance involves getting as many clinics, and punks, and students, and clinic staff, and patients, and the companies we regularly do business with… this next part is the beginning of getting all those people dancing together.
Don't worry we'll start slowly. One foot, and then the other, and then the first one again… over and over.and BAM! we're POCA-ing…
Have you got a script, something posted in the clinic, on your website, pictures of the front desk receptors wearing giant “ASK me about POCA” buttons, or any other great ideas on how to make this fun and easy?
What if healthcare, and ecomomies, and communities, and education, were designed with the users in mind. Or how about not just in mind, but involved. Giving all stakeholders a voice is just part of what it will take to make our coop truly participatory and shaped by those who own it. What it will look like when we get that many more people involved in shaping, and supporting it will be amazing. But we've got to invite people to the dance floor to get them to dance. Right?
