WEDHS offers a way to improve the health and wellbeing for black and minority ethnic (BME) people in Wales through an innovative programme of research and development. WEDHS stands for The Wales Equality and Diversity in Health and Social Care Research and Support Service – a group of academics, community development activists and researchers who are committed to carrying out, and supporting, high quality research on key health and social care issues facing BME groups.

The WEDHS West Wales Hub is hosting an event in the New Year which may be of interest. The Workforce Development Workshop will take place on Friday, 30th January 2009 at the Dylan Thomas Centre Somerset Place, Swansea, SA1 1RR, 10:30 am – 3:30 pm.

The aim of the workshop:

  • To showcase the findings of two recent studies which explored the educational preparation of pre-registration nursing students and of social work students in Wales to competently practice in increasingly ethnically diverse communities
  • To spotlight initiatives which support the development of person-centred service delivery

The workshop is aimed at health and social care practitioners, policy makers, academics, researchers, equality agents, those working in the area of patient, user, public and community engagement and others interested in these cross-cutting issues.
