The United States healthcare system was not designed with Black/African American patients in mind, nor has it adapted to serve the unique health-related social needs of Black people. Historic and modern racist practices, from discriminatory laws and policies to lack of access to clinical services, have led to disparities in patient care and outcomes for Black people. This collective experience of mistreatment has generational impact and contributes to patient mistrust and reluctance to engage with the system. Black/African American patients feel they are treated without respect, have to beg for services, and are seldom offered the same advanced services White patients routinely receive. Outcomes data appears to bear this out, with Black people having lower life expectancy, higher rates of cancer mortality, and the highest rates of infant mortality among all races.
During this program, national experts will examine how racism, discrimination, and inter-generational trauma impact clinical care practices for Black/African American patients. The educational discussion will center on introducing trauma-informed care practices and other trust-building interventions into clinical care to improve patient outcomes and address health-related social needs for Black/African American patients.
