Hosted by Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership | 10 – 11.30am | 25 February 2021 | online
A feedback and discussion session focusing on the ‘Getting Under the Skin’ project, which is aimed at discovering new insights and approaches to ensure personalised, effective health interventions for different ethnic groups.
Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership, in collaboration with NHS England and Improvement, Public Health England and the Cheshire and Merseyside Directors of Public Health, is leading ground-breaking insight research to gain a better understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in Cheshire and Merseyside, as well as understand attitudes and views relating to the COVID vaccine.
There is clear evidence that COVID-19 does not affect all population groups equally. The pandemic has both exposed and exacerbated longstanding inequalities in society. The ‘Getting Under the Skin’ project aims to discover new insights and approaches to ensure that interventions are more personalised and effective for different ethnic groups, so we can reduce the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups and reduce health inequalities. The first two phases of this project have been completed. The final phase is due to conclude in April.
This research could be of particular interest to public health and EDI colleagues across the North West and so, at this time, Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership invite you to a ‘show and tell’ webinar.
The aim of this event is to:
- feedback the interim findings of the first two phases of the project
- encourage discussion about what you think the findings mean for the COVID-19 response (test and trace, vaccine, recovery etc)
- provide an opportunity for you to input to and shape the final phase of the project, the qualitative research.
