Social determinants of health (SDOH), the conditions in which we live, work, grow and age, can significantly influence a person’s health and well-being. These factors, including socioeconomic status, transportation, access to healthy foods and others, shape the conditions of daily life. To successfully deliver patient-centered care, it’s critical that care teams understand and address SDOH to meet their community’s needs.
Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions on March 18 from 2-3 p.m. ET for a webinar on practical guidelines to addressing the social determinants of health in your organization. Experts will share suggestions for using a successful approach, “three-way integration” and other strategies to address SDOH including identifying common language, selection of screening tools, staff coordination and workflows.
You will gain guidance and practical strategies to:
- Understand the language of describing SDOH and why this distinction matters.
- Recognize categories of SDOH and key characteristics for early detection.
- Adopt commonly used tools to universally screen patients for SDOH.
- Identify roles of team members in screening, intervention and referral to social services or community organizations.
