Sharing methods and findings of the CICADA study

Several members of the CICADA team were invited to present at this years BSA Medical Sociology conference at Lancaster University.

The team presented methodological approaches as well as qualitative and quantitative findings. In the CICADA study we have used a range of participatory methods to engage migrant communities, capture unheard voices and understand how the study can help positively shape health and social care for these communities. Dr Amanda Moore gave a well received presentation explaining how we have worked with community co-researchers and how we have used futures-based co-design methods to work with a range of stakeholders to shape the study outputs for impact, both in the short and long-term. Qualitative findings were presented by Dr Kusha Anand and Professor Carol Rivas. Dr Anand shared her moving analysis of interviews with undocumented migrants, highlighting the poignant and difficult pandemic experiences resulting from having no recourse to public funds and lack of healthcare support. This subset of voices was then framed by Professor Rivas' account of findings from the wider data-set, explored using a Keyword In Context (KWIC) approach. Finally Dr Alison, Fang-Wei Wu's presentation explored some of the fascinating quantitative data from the CICADA three-wave survey, about her team's key findings about the role of community support in shaping well-being. These presentations can be viewed in the links below.
