KCL E-Bame research study

A new research study is being delivered by King’s College London (KCL). The memory research team here at KCL are working towards exploring health and wellbeing in Black, Asian and ethnic communities and faiths groups during the COVID-19 pandemic (E-Bame study).

 

The study will help to understand the impact of COVID-19 and the health needs within Black, Asian and ethnic communities and faith groups. The study will also help to explore ways to better improve health and well-being within the community pre and post pandemic​ and will enable to answer relevant questions to shape health service use and research to benefit across communities. The rationale behind this study is that there is currently an underrepresentation of participants from Black, Asian and ethnic communities within research and we recognise the importance of ensuring that all research is diverse and beneficial to all. 

 

This research study involves the completion of a 10-15 minute online survey that can be completed in the comfort of your own home. Participants will then later be asked to complete a series of follow up online surveys after 1 month, 3 month, 6 months and 12 months (you are free to withdraw at any point in the study). Throughout the study there will also be opportunities for participants to join our KCL Public and Patient involvement groups which help to shape future research within King’s College London.

 

In order to take part participants must meet the following criteria: 

  • Aged 40 and over (we are particularly interested in participation from those over the age of 60)

If you feel that this study would be of interest to your members, we are able to provide you with a study information sheet for further detail. We would also be more than happy to deliver a talk on dementia and ongoing dementia research that is being conducted in our department. This could be delivered face to face or conducted online. 

 

Any members that are interested in taking part in this study will be able to visit the online survey below to participate. They will be provided with the study information sheet and consent form before completing the survey:  https://kings.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/e-bame-study-baseline
