Lab Activity 4 - Priority setting for a local community
JLA PSPs typically focus on setting priorities in specific health conditions or health settings. The East London Pandemic PSP for Ethnic Minority Communities differs from most PSPs in its scope. For this exercise community priorities are likely to cover areas beyond health research, such as design and provision of local services, education, housing, or community initiatives. This means that the process may not follow the same processes for research evidence checking that typical PSPs undertake.
In another adaptation, this exercise focuses on a geographic location and population, rather than an area of health and care. The PSP aims to co-create solutions with East London ethnic minority communities to help inform local and national Covid-19 pandemic responses, to better support ethnic minority communities and foster transformational change. We will report back on the challenges and successes of their work to inform future similar PSPs.
