Health Inequalities Project Casebook 2008 - 2012

This Casebook is an engaging introduction to the work of the Health Inequalities theme of the SY CLAHRC. Designed with commissioners, providers and (ultimately) service users in mind, it reflects the type of challenges and opportunities presented and includes key learning points for services. We would also like to acknowledge the valuable contribution made by Peter Roderick to the Casebook's development.

Peter is on the local government leadership programme (NGDP), currently working at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and leading a variety of public health projects around integration and health inequalities. Prior to moving into local government management, he completed a PhD at the University of York in 2010 and has since published research on such diverse topics as music history, political theory, theology, and health policy.'   

The Evidence and Ethnicity in Commissioning (EEiC) Mini Case Study Book

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

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

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

Ready Steady Go Toolkit

Telehealth is considered to have great potential to support the ever increasing ageing population. Telehealth services, however, are rare and many of the available services fail. Evidence suggests that this failure is due to the lack of understanding of the barriers surrounding implementation. In view of this, there have been various attempts to devise telehealth implementation toolkits to help prevent implementation failure. One recent attempt has been the development of a telehealth implementation toolkit entitled, “Ready Steady Go” (RSG) (Brownsell & Ellis, 2012).
