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.
