What we have produced
We have produced a number of resources as part of the Better Health project, including:
Better Health briefing papers
Central to the Better Health project is a collection of evidence-based briefing papers containing research, good practice tips, resources, and key messages targeted towards frontline health practitioners. Although the papers focus on a variety of different issues and ethnic groups, overarching themes include:
- the impact of personal or institutional racism on black and minority ethnic service users and staff.
- limitations in the provision of culturally, ethnically and linguistically appropriate health services.
- obstacles to participation and engagement by black and minority ethnic service users in health services, such as segregation, dispersal or language.
- intersections between age, disability, gender, faith, poverty and ethnicity.
- best practice examples to tackle discrimination and disadvantage.

Dr Leander Neckles, in collaboration with the Race Equality Foundation, has provided a series of briefings and response papers on a variety of topics. Her latest briefing is Preventing deaths in detention of adults with mental health conditions.
Better Health website
The Better Health (external website) provides access to the full collection of Better Health briefings, alongside supplementary collections of related resources, weblinks and events listings. The site also provides news and current affairs information to highlight the changing legislative background to equality issues, and provide guidance to help practitioners embed good practice in their everyday work.
To suggest future briefings, or include resources or events on the Better Health website, please contact Kat Nower.
