Social Determinants of Health and Health Disparities During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This session describes the social determinants of health—defined by the World Health Organization as the conditions under which people live, work, learn, and play—and explains how patients’ health and well-being can be viewed as a socially constructed phenomenon. The session explores the role of systems of oppression and location of position in generating health inequities and uses current evidence about the interplay between the COVID-19 pandemic and the social determinants of health to help participants develop strategies to intervene to improve their patients’ quality of life and promote health equity.
This course is a recorded session from the "2022 ASHA Health Care Summit: Grand Rounds in COVID-19 Rehab" online conference.
You will be able to:
- Explain the constructs that make health a socially constructed phenomenon
- Follow fundamental principles when screening for the social determinants of health
- List resources for patients in the clinical environment and community that are related to the social determinants of health
