As significant health inequities persist across the US, health care systems have an important role to play in achieving health equity.
While health care organizations alone do not have the power to improve the multiple determinants of health for all of society, they do have the power to address disparities directly at the point of care, and to take a variety of actions that impact health of communities beyond the point of care.
Providing health care professionals with a framework on how to reduce these health disparities is this IHI Virtual Expedition: Achieving Health Equity, beginning October 10, 2017. In six sessions, this virtual, team-based training will help participants identify whether structures are in place that support equity work, prioritize a strategic plan, and collect, stratify, and analyze data with an equity lens.
Attend and become part of the movement by:
- Applying practical improvement methods and tools
- Spreading ideas in peer-to-peer learning
- Disseminating results and lessons to support an ongoing national dialogue and action for improving health equity
