Description

In Dundee, 10.6% of the population identified as an ethnic minority. The proposed project worked with Dundee International Women’s Centre as a local community centre for migrant and BME women living in Dundee to explore their experience and opinions of participation in health and oral health research. Understanding their needs and involving the community through participatory approach the project will help researchers better understand factors that potentially affect the migrant and BME people’s decisions for research participation and improve the inclusivity of the research for a wide range of migrant and BME groups.
AIM: The proposed project is therefore to engage individuals from migrant and BME groups and members of staff who work with these groups from the local community to share their experiences, views and perceived challenges and opportunities to improve migrant and BME groups’ research participation, and therefore to identify effective strategies to engage these socially excluded groups in health and oral health research. The objectives are:
[1] to work collaboratively with the staff members from the local community to develop the co-design/co-production workshop.
[2] to deliver the co-design/co-production workshops to invite individuals from migrant and BME groups and other stakeholders (including community workers and University researchers) to share their experience and opinions of research participation, to identify barriers and enablers, and to work collaboratively with them to identify effective strategies of improving participation in health and oral health research.
[3] to co-produce a poster and a booklet to highlight ‘Dos & Don’ts’ to improve the inclusivity and to maximise participation of research for a wide range of migrant and BME groups.
[4] to evaluate the outputs and identify approachable channels for disseminating the outputs to reach researchers to share the knowledge, which is created and exchanged from this public engagement workshop.
