In the United States, the presence of health care disparities undermines the ability for patients to access equitable, culturally respectful care, receive accurate and timely diagnoses and treatments, and achieve optimal outcomes. In order to address these disparities in care and outcomes, it is imperative that all health care practitioners (HCPs) continually engage in educational initiatives that provide historical context for disparities, challenge implicit biases, and detail actionable steps to improve patient care and outcomes for the groups most impacted by health inequities.
This CME Outfitters Snack is the foundational program of an 11-part series on culturally respectful care and addressing health care disparities. Expert faculty will engage learners in a comprehensive educational initiative that will help them to identify the various underlying root causes of disparities, integrate the practice of cultural humility into all clinical interactions, and incorporate regular self-assessment for bias into standard clinical practice to enhance the patient experience and improve outcomes.
