The Race Equality Foundation invites you to join them for a Community Day of Practice: Musculoskeletal Health and BAME Inequalities.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions account for 30% of GP consultations in England, with lower back pain and neck pain resulting in the greatest amount of years lost to disability. As part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance (HWA), FaithAction have worked in partnership with the Race Equality Foundation and CLINKS to explore the current evidence base of musculoskeletal conditions, inequality and improving the experience of healthy ageing for BAME communities.

Some evidence suggests Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups report higher rates of MSK conditions and are more likely to experience risk factors such as deprivation, obesity, stress, depression and physical inactivity.

The Race Equality Foundation are bringing together a diversity of professionals in a ‘Community Day of Practice’ to explore the findings of the project and foster cross sector learning and solutions to improve the outcomes of BAME people with MSK.

This event is open to any professional who support and work with BAME people with MSK conditions. This includes clinicians, researchers, voluntary and community sector groups and healthcare professionals.
