Mini Case Studies


Designed for all practitioners in health and social care, this collection of 10 case studies shows how evidence can be used in commissioning for ethnic communities to:

  • Raise the profile of BME issues
  • Understand particular needs
  • Design solutions
  • Monitor and create on-going improvement

Short, direct, and easy to read, taster stories link here to more detailed descriptions on to help overcome common barriers in service design and delivery, and give practical, real-word examples of using evidence in innovative ways.
