A one-day conference on recent research about how migration and ethnic background can affect health.
With new arrivals from many parts of the world, Scotland's population is becoming ever more diverse.
- Why is the overall health of some ethnic minorities better than that of the White Scottish population, but others don't seem to be doing so well?
- Why do patterns of disease vary between ethnic groups?
- How can we intervene to improve health across all ethnic groups?
- What is the experience of ethnic minorities and especially recently arrived migrants regarding access to and use of health and social care services?
- How does the experience of Scotland compare with that of other parts of the UK and Europe?
Participants will hear about the latest research findings. After each group of presentations, a panel will discuss with the audience what the results mean and how they can be put to good use.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts for free papers and posters: June 22.
Please see the final programme and the list of the accepted posters for more details.
