Most of us are aware that health disparities in the United States are disproportionately caused by several factors. Some of these factors include socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity. As we examine communities having increased prevalence and incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), health disparities are integral to these problematic trends.

This interactive course aims to guide an understanding of holistic community solutions that can increase equity, improve systems of care across the community, develop networks and trust, strengthen communication channels and implement city-wide protocols and practices to improve access to care, coordination of care between primary and specialist and individual knowledge of health. 

Learning Objectives:
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
• Evaluate the various dimensions of disparities.
• Discuss relevant research, challenges and complexities related to health disparities.
• Reflect on your own beliefs and foundations of practice to gain a broader understanding of health disparities.
• Theorize an approach as a practitioner to integrate tools when planning care for patients.
• Reflect upon the role and importance of cultural competency in providing equitable care.
• Reflect upon and assess the issue of healthcare disparities under the subdivisions of provider, institution and community responsibility.
• Measure improved care in populations accessing the safety net.
• Evaluate the impact of social determinants of health in making health decisions.
• Analyze the applicability of risk assessment tools.
