There is an urgent need to address health-related inequities in communities of color across the United States by providing education and sharing best practices at the root of systemic racism.
Most clinicians believe that health care disparities are related more to the systems of care than their own decisions on when and how to provide that care. Understanding and eliminating unconscious bias are paramount to improving patient care. As a CME provider, CME Outfitters has a responsibility to tackle this issue and be a guiding force for health care professionals (HCPs) around the globe.
This hub serves as a framework for addressing not only the barriers to equitable health care access, medications, and follow-up but also the stigma that creates inequity and impedes care for underserved patients. The educational activities and resources in this hub are designed to shed light on this matter, help HCPs recognize these issues, and empower them with tools to use in their clinical practice.
