An understanding of inclusion is now vital to research and action for equity in health and social wellbeing. It is relevant to marginalised groups, such as those living:
- in poor socioeconomic conditions
- in long-term care
- with disabilities that affect communication, cognition and psychosocial functioning.
With mass migration across ever-more technologised societies, inclusion is key to reducing tensions between standardising healthcare and delivering it to increasingly diverse populations.
We focus our research aims and methods on examining mechanisms and health outcomes linked to inclusion, mutual understanding and collaborative research in and with communities and institutions. To achieve this, we use a range of innovative quantitative, qualitative and social science-related methodologies.
