Target Audience and Needs
Healthcare providers and trainees within the Harris Health System need to receive regular updates on system-related issues that affect the care of patient populations who are adversely affected by health disparities and inequities. The series aims to provide a platform to identify systemic issues within the Harris Health System and means to address those issues to improve patient care across all patient demographics. The series will also explore how cultural humility can deepen connections between patients and healthcare providers and diminish stereotyping and bias.
Educational methods will include lectures and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Describe how social and system factors drive health disparities and inequities and how these factors affect patient care outcomes.
- Identify individual and systemic behaviors and practices that can be improved to enhance patient care, healthcare experiences, and outcomes of patients served within the Harris Health System.
- Define cultural humility and explain its importance in healthcare delivery.
- Recognize how bolstering efforts to foster inclusion and achieve equity and diversity goals can ultimately improve the lives of those who receive and those who provide healthcare.
