Tackling Disparities: Inside the Social Determinants of Health

Activity Preview

Nonmedical issues demand pharmacists’ attention in increasingly urgent ways, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Focusing on conditions in patients’ homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities—the social determinants of health (SDOH)—can lead to more comprehensive treatment approaches and ultimately improve outcomes. At this session, an expert will help you understand SDOH and gain greater insights into your patients’ struggles so you can direct them to appropriate resources.
