This tool is a way to identify what different stakeholders need and what improvements will help more than one stakeholder.
Why use it
You can use this tool to compare one stakeholder's needs against those of another. For example, patient needs and ideas can be identified and compared to managerial, clinical and other stakeholder needs.
Healthcare services often identify potential improvements before a project starts. As a result, they may inadvertently exclude other stakeholders' needs and useful improvement ideas. This tool helps build a balanced view of potential improvement areas and improvement ideas.
When to use it
A stakeholder needs table is a useful tool for sketching out possible improvements near the start of your co-design work, as well as deciding on key areas for improvement and specific improvements later on in your work.
