Venue: Room 2.07, Humanities, Bridgeford Street Building

Sorry, this event has now ended.

You are cordially invited to a special guest seminar organised by the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE). Dr Jayati Das-Munshi (Department of Health Services & Population Research, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London) will be speaking on her recent mixed methods project focussing on physical health inequalities in people with severe mental illnesses with an emphasis on ethnic inequalities. Her talk will focus on initial findings from this study and in particular the potential as well as methodological challenges in trying to use such data to understand health inequalities.

Jayati's study will utilise information from more than 1.0 million electronic health records from UK primary and secondary healthcare covering an ethnically diverse region in South and East London. The study will also involve qualitative methodologies (focus groups and interviews) conducted in collaboration with service user researchers. Initial findings from the study have focussed on variations in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in severe mental illness by ethnicity and ethnic minority differences in mortality outcomes in people with severe mental illnesses.

Food and Refreshments will be provided
