Engaging migrant and BAME groups in health and oral health promotion research: co-design/co-production workshops

Activity: Other activity typesOther

Description

Migrant and BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) groups are more likely to suffer from poorer health and oral health outcomes in general. However, they have been underrepresented in research and health promotion interventions for decades. The proposed project is to engage migrant and BAME groups and DIWC community staff to share their experiences, views and perceived challenges and opportunities to improve migrant and BAME groups’ research participation, and therefore to identify effective strategies to engage these socially excluded groups in health and oral health research.
