It Takes a Village: Addressing social determinants of health

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Social determinants of health are non-medical factors — such as safe and affordable housing, access to healthy food and income inequality — that can significantly impact an individual’s overall health, well-being and medical outcomes. Designed for a wide range of clinicians, this course aims to increase knowledge and skill in recognizing social determinant of health issues and, where possible, helping patients navigate these challenges. This course will focus on tangible and doable practices that will support patients in improving their health across a variety of social determinant of health issues.
