Breaking the cycle of inequalities for people with a learning disability

10th April 2024, 12:00pm - 1:00pm , Online

Dr Amy Russell is an Associate Professor at the University of Leeds. She leads a portfolio of research addressing health inequalities in research design, research governance, and clinical practice for “under-served” populations. She has significant experience working with historically excluded populations including women who have experienced human trafficking, people with learning disabilities and women with disabilities in global development settings. Her current research, funded by Wellcome and NIHR and collaborating with the HRA and MRC-NIHR Trial Research Methodology Partnership, aims to improve inclusion in applied health research for under-served populations with a particular focus on people with a learning disability. She previously worked at the WHO Disability Team, collaborating on the Global Report on Health Equity for People with a Disability 2022. 

During this one-hour webinar organised by the FPH Primary Care and Public Health SIG, hear from Dr Russell about the importance of addressing the barriers in equality in healthcare for people with a learning disability. Dr Russell will also reflect on the underrepresentation of marginalised populations in research and how this needs to be tackled as we strive for evidence based clinical practice. This session will be of interest to those from primary care and public health backgrounds.
