BTG: Promoting the health and well-being of ethnic minority families in Glasgow

Project: Internally funded project

Description

This study aims to document the experiences of ethnic minority families’ engagement with health services. The project will explore the experiences of families with children from three minority groups (established minority, new minority, nomadic minority) to generate initial findings to inform further research applications. The proposed activities include dataset analysis on migrants’ health, interviews with service providers and families, and policy analysis. The project adopts a cross-disciplinary approach to investigating minorities’ health and well-being. Outputs will include a research report, publications and conference papers, a policy briefing, and dissemination events with potential research users, to explore further applications for funding.

Planned outputs will include a research report, publications and conference papers, a policy briefing, and dissemination events with potential research users, to explore further applications for funding.

We will aim to produce a research report based on the findings and disseminate this through an event held by the Centre for Health Policy for service providers and policy makers. A policy briefing will also be issued. In order to reach a wide range of users, we will organise two dissemination workshops, sharing the research findings and engaging practitioners in coproduction of ideas on best practice to tackling health inequalities in the city. In addition to publication in highly rated journals and one or two conference papers, we aim to submit at least one proposal for funding to Horizon 2020 under the ‘Health and well-being’ theme.
