Commissioning healthcare for multi-ethnic populations
07 March 2013

The Evidence and Ethnicity in Commissioning project was a two-year research project funded by the National Institutue for Health Research (NIHR) that focused on understanding current practices, obstacles and opportunities related to commissioning health services that better meet the needs of minority ethnic populations and thereby reduce inequalities. Lynne Carter, head of equality and diversity, was involved as one of three NHS co-researchers working in Bradford and Airedale Primary Care Trust.

On 12 March Lynne will be making a presentation about this project at the Eighth National Conference on Quality health care for culturally diverse populations in Oakland, California. In addition to describing the main findings and introducing some of the tools Lynne shall talk about how much she has learnt as co-researcher.

Lynne will be blogging here about the conference and some of the other sessions she’s attending from 12 March.

You can get more information about the project and the tools in development from the Evidence and Ethnicity in Commissioning website.
