Ethics Beyond Clinical that Impact Health Care

Friday, September 24, 2021
The registration period has closed for this event.

8:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Topic Summary:

Current climate and awareness of health care ethical disparities is important to understand population challenges. Most health care professionals do not realize, understand, or are not aware of the impact of clients with different social populations. Naivety of the impact of social determinants on health brings barriers which may result in lessening positive outcomes for patients. Education is needed to bring awareness of the impact of ethics and beyond clinical that can be used to improve patient outcomes.
