Table 3 Understanding the different populations affected

From: Moving towards a more inclusive patient and public involvement in health research paradigm: the incorporation of a trauma-informed intersectional analysis

Questions for the research team (i.e. Researchers and Public Research Partners)
1. What inequities (i.e. avoidable and unjust inequalities between and within groups of people) exist in relation to the health issue we will be researching? (Remember to think about intersecting social and structural locations such as gender identity, race, ethnicity, Indigeneity, socioeconomic status, sexuality, gender expression, sexual orientation, immigrant status, religion as well as processes such as patriarchy, colonialism, capitalism, racism, ableism and heterosexism)
2. Where should we look to find the necessary information to help us answer this research question?
3. In what ways do you think we could get a conversation going about the health issue we are researching across different groups of people who may be differently affected by the same health issue?
4. When thinking of the different groups of people who may be differently affected by the same health condition or issue, what do you think are things that we still need to work at better understanding? (i.e. knowledge/evidence gaps)
