Background: An inadequate care plan after a first episode of psychosis (FEP) can lead to severe impairment in prognosis. The multifactorial etiology of FEP implies an interprofessional, patient- and recovery-oriented care. Community of practice (COP), formed by actors involved in a collaborative process of knowledge building and spreading, could represent a promising and innovative model to engage all stakeholders in sharing their expertise and evidence based practices. We aim to develop a “FEP-COP” to improve knowledge and quality of practices in FEP. Methods: In a proof-of-concept participatory action research, we will set-up a local COP involving stakeholders of the psychiatric healthcare and research system (professionals, researchers, students and patients/caregivers), in a French urban area (Lyon, 1,3 million inhabitants). We will assess the feasibility of this model to generate open knowledge (e.g.: pedagogic and educational contents), and collaborative research projects. The COP will be co-facilitated by senior/junior researchers and clinicians tandems and will evolve with regular or virtual meetings, community social media, and thematic subgroups. Feasibility will be measured on processes, resources and management issues, and scientific achievements. Expected Results: We expect an impact of COP in 3 axis: (1) improvement of knowledge and perceptions on psychosis of the COP actors; (2) impact on our FEP research agenda; (3) better perceived involvement of patients and caregivers in the process of research and knowledge building within the community. In the next phase, we plan to extend our COP with national and international collaborators.
