Social Determinants of Health Overview

Social Determinants of Health Overview 

Extensive, external conditions exist with potential to affect a patient’s current and future health, often beyond a patient’s direct control. These conditions, referred to as social determinants of health, encompass where a patient lives and works; socioeconomic policies, systems, and norms; and more. These factors and a wide array of others contribute to health inequity and inequalities at local, state, national, and international levels. In this course, you will learn about the five pillars of social determinants of health and how they impact the daily delivery, accessibility, and engagement of health improvement efforts. You will review the conceptual framework behind social determinants of health, current inequalities and inequities in healthcare, and other challenges that are present when attempting to address determinants to improve the health of individuals and communities. Finally, you will explore how to increase awareness and interest in the determinants, as well as ways to engage patients, stakeholders, and other providers in addressing social determinants of health. This course is appropriate for all providers in a primary care setting.
