Open Space on Health Inequalities in Scotland (Report)

This is a visual and written summary of an Open Space event on Health Inequalities that took place on 31st March 2015 at The Melting Pot in Edinburgh. The event was organised and facilitated by the Working Age/Adult Life Working Group of the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy (SCPHRP), University of Edinburgh. Funding for this event was part of the core funding grant provided to SCPHRP by the Medical Research Council and the Chief Scientist Office. Twenty-five people attended the event, consisting of eight from the NHS/healthcare, five from community/voluntary organisations, nine from academic research and three from other sectors. We generated the following clustered bullet points based on our theme for the day (below). Participants grouped and named the topics discussed, before voting on the topics they felt needed the greatest priority for more discussion on the day and in the future.

An open space to discuss what you think health inequalities in Scotland will look like in the next decade and beyond, particularly related to emerging risk factors, health/wellbeing outcomes and potential solutions.
