Abstract

In this paper we use a case study, the co-production of a prostate cancer app with, and for, Black British African-Caribbean communities, to discuss benefits and tensions of inclusive practice and allyship. We view our collaborators as joint partners, and joint allies, for the Black British African-Caribbean community. Here, we document the research process and highlight successful aspects of our collaboration such as mentoring, recruitment, ideas on the format and presentation of the app, supportive data collection practices, useful community feedback and promotion of the app. We also highlight points in the research process that in hindsight needed more discussion and careful negotiation. We end with some recommendations based on our experience.
