Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Research Advisory Group (BRAG) members outline what they expect from researchers who are attending BRAG meetings for advice

  • Present Information about the research clearly and visually. Use a maximum of five slides

  • Be clear about why you are coming to the group. What expertise and input are you looking for? Specify any constraints you have.

  • Include information about how your research/topic area is relevant to people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. What is known already, and what is not known?

  • Include information about how this topic affects people who experience health inequalities?

  • Consider what research has been already done in other countries or other places. How might such research inform your approach?

  • Be aware of the role that language and interpretation can play in people’s experiences of health care and research

  • Be aware of cultural and religious restrictions, norms that can affect people’s experiences of health care and research

  • Feed back to the group 6 months after meeting. What impact has BRAG input had on your research?
