Activity Overview

The benefits of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are enormous. Data informs us that diverse organizations and teams perform better. This presentation will explore what drives better performance. Specific strategies demonstrating ways the University of Chicago Medicine used its framework for equity and diversity to improve health outcomes for patients and persons within the surrounding community will be shared by an expert leader from the health system.

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of learners who seek to improve their knowledge and understanding of current issues in DEI.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • List examples of data that support the benefits of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) on team strength.
  • Discuss strategies to improve health outcomes for patients and communities.
