    Abstract

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore perceived barriers to the recruitment and retention of
    Black and Minority Ethnic community individuals partaking in healthcare education role playing activities
    using simulated patient scenarios.
    Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative, exploratory study was conducted with a self-selecting,
    convenience, sample of 25 participants from Black and Minority communities using one-to-one and
    group interviews to elicit data. Ethical approval was successfully received from the University.
    Findings – Five broad emergent themes were identified: language, knowledge, power, inequalities and
    inclusion.
    Originality/value – The participants’ sharing of their own experiences developed a feeling of personal
    achievement through an understanding in others of their own community and values.
