Abstract

Migrant and BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) groups are more likely to suffer from poorer health and oral health outcomes in general. In Dundee, 10.6% of the population identified as an ethnic minority. However, they have been underrepresented in research and health promotion interventions for decades. This reinforces the importance of using participatory research to capture the realities and health needs of these groups to inform policy and interventions addressing health inequalities. The research project ‘Engaging People from Ethic Minority Groups in Health and Oral Health Research’ aimed to engage individuals from migrant and BME groups and researchers who work with these groups to share their experiences, views and perceived challenges and opportunities to improve migrant and BME groups’ research participation. As a specific objective we wanted to identify effective strategies to engage these socially excluded groups in health and oral health research.

This booklet is one of the research outcomes in this project. It was co-designed with migrant and BME women living in Dundee to explore their experience and opinions of participation in health and oral health research. We hope this resource will contribute to improve the inclusivity and to maximise participation of research for a wide range of migrant and BME groups.
