It is well established that some ethnic minority populations face poorer health and quality of life compared to the general population. The disproportionate burden of the coronavirus pandemic on ethnic minority communities has further highlighted the need to understand and tackle long-standing health inequalities and increase the representation of minorities in health and social care research. Primary care health services and related research plays an important role in understanding and tackling these health inequalities.
In this Special Issue, we are inviting submissions relating to ‘Ethnic Minority Health and Primary Care’, including work on health and wellbeing outcomes, access to and experiences of primary care services, changes to the delivery of primary care services, primary care policy/strategy, methodological considerations in primary care research, etc.
We welcome all methodological approaches such as qualitative studies, mixed methods, policy/strategy analyses, large database analyses, intervention trials, and reviews.
We are particularly keen for authors to consider and acknowledge the considerable heterogeneity both within and between ethnic minority populations (e.g. utilise disaggregated ethnic group data) where possible.
