Teaching and assessment materials and more created for healthcare educators, so learners understand how to incorporate social determinants of health into practice. By sharing these tools, we hope to improve health outcomes for everyone. Tomorrow’s better healthcare begins here.
The education collection contains many case-based materials about social determinants. Cases promote active learning, but single cases may unintentionally promote stereotypes if learners presume that all patients from the demographic depicted in the case experience the same barriers. We have posted excellent curricula with single-case examples. If you adopt one, consider telling your learners “While this case depicts a patient from a specific demographic who faces a particular barrier to health, remember that populations are diverse. Many people from this demographic do not experience that barrier. Likewise, many patients from other populations may experience that very barrier.” Impart to your learners that they must learn to ask important questions about social determinants, but not to assume.
