ABSTRACT

Racial and Social Inequalities: Taking the Conversations Forward   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "This position paper is intended to begin conversations and engagement with stakeholders to co-produce a change strategy to counter racial and social inequalities. It offers initial thoughts on the risks and impact of Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] on pre-existing racial and social inequalities and structural racism. It takes up an inward and outward facing approach to considering barriers to change at individual, professional, social and institutional levels. It also starts to develop an understanding of why this is happening. It outlines an urgent call to action to centre, support, and learn from at risk communities. A framework for change, informed by the literature, our experiences and consultation with others is put forward for the profession, organisations and policy-makers."
