Health Disparities & Patient Care: Could I Have Prevented a Stroke?
Don’t miss our upcoming webinar on Thursday, December 16, 2021 @ 12:00 PM ET.
Health Disparities are systematic differences in the health status of different population groups that are closely linked to social, economic, and environmental disadvantages. Implicit bias, language barriers, and a lack of cultural sensitivity all contribute to the quality of care a patient receives. Culturally competent medical professionals are able to provide optimal care by tailoring health care delivery to meet a patients social, cultural, and linguistic needs. In this webinar, we will discuss how an understanding of the social determinants of health can inform how practitioners engage with patients and introduce a new AC Forum resource on this important topic.
Presenters & Authors:
• April Allen, PharmD, CACP
• Danielle Jenkins, RN, BSN
• Julia Mulheman, PharmD
• Sara Vazquez, PharmD, BCPS, CACP
• Terri Wiggins, MS
