Hispanic/Latino patients do not enjoy equitable access to health care treatment or resources. Systemic racism has severely limited Hispanic/Latino patients’ opportunities to productively engage with the health care system, and the results are negative patient experiences and outcomes. Hispanic/Latino patients feel mistrust of the system and that they are less likely to receive equitable clinical care or be offered all treatment options. This perception is validated by hard data. Along with language barriers, Hispanic/Latino patients also face provider bias and indifference and feel that the larger system does not appreciate or address their unique needs.
Clinical experts will lead an educational discussion on best practices designed to mitigate some of these disparities and engender mutual trust in the health care setting. This presentation shares interventions that address and relieve stigma experienced by Hispanic/Latino patients with the goal of making the clinic a place where they feel welcome and heard.
