» Another published paper from GPU members

Yu J (2009) Young people of Chinese origin in western countries: a systematic review of their sexual attitudes and behaviour. Health & Social Care in the Community, 18(2):117-128.

Juping is very pleased that one of her papers has just been published in the journal Health and Social Care in the Community. The paper reports on a systematic review of sexual attitudes and behaviour among ethnic Chinese young people living in western countries.

This is GPU’s second publication this week, following Verity’s paper published earlier this week. A good start of GPU’s another productive year, isn’t it?

» Engaging minority ethnic people in Research

Engaging people from minority ethnic groups in research can be challenging. In her recently published paper, Juping discussed issues arising while undertaking research with Chinese British families on attitudes towards teenage sexual behaviour (http://tcn.sagepub.com/pap.dtl).

Yu J (2008) Qualitative research on the attitudes toward teenage sexual behaviour of Chinese British families. Journal of Transcultural Nursing doi:10.1177/1043659608325842

Have you faced any issues when conducting research with minority ethnic communities? Do you have any experience to share? More dialogue in this area is welcome and greatly needed.
