Hi Patricia,

the area that we are working in has been surveyed to death. Many of the people are sick of surveys. So far we have found that to increase compliance we can

1 - make the form as attracticve and proffesionally made as possible
2 - address the questionnaire or accompanying letter from the patients GP - this adds a tone of seriousness
3 - back this up by informing communities
4 - solidify these strategies by making sure that staff who may administer the questionnaire or help people fill it in are aware of why this information is needed and confident to expla8in this potentially sensitive subject to patients.


Thanks for your advice andf I will keep the list posted about our progress,

Ben Jones

Hi Benjamin, It is very good that you are collecting this information.
Perhaps to encourage the white patients to complete the form some
information on the form indicating that all should answer regardless of
ethnic group would help.  Patricia Hamilton

Subject: Input Needed for Ethnicity Data Collection

Hi All,

here in Liverpool we are about to embark on a substantial patient
profiling project. That is, we will collect a lot more information about
individual primary care patients and use this information to provide
impetus and evidence to change the services that we provide.

We are now discussing what information to collect.

We have decided on-

*Ethnic Group - as dictated by the 2001 census categories

*Country of Birth - to add light to some of the more nebulous categories
ethnic categories such as Black British.

*Main Spoken Language - we have decided at the moment not to collect
written/read language. We have a very good dataset from a similar
project done at Princes Park Health Centre and we intend to extrapolate
this information to inform us as to the likely read language of
patients.

*Religion

Do any of you have any other suggestions?

One thing I am conscious of and am also quite sure of from previous
experience is that if we only collect these variables a lot of white
patients will not return the forms as they will consider that it only
applies to black patients.

The other factor is that any information that we collect should really
be unlikely to change over time. Employment status for instance will
change over time and is therefore of limited use to us.

I would be very grateful for any thoughts,

Ben Jones
