Health inequities experienced by US black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and other underserved groups are persistent challenges that have dire consequences. Pharmacy professionals have an obligation to understand the impact of social determinants of health inequities on the health and well-being of BIPOC and to take actions to address them.
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 faculty at colleges of pharmacy, RPDs, and preceptors of accredited residency programs to use as discussion with residents and students.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the role of social determinants of health in well-being and health inequities experienced by US black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and other underserved groups.
- Describe the effects of health inequities on life expectancy and the US health care system.
- Describe how pharmacy professionals, institutions, and organizations can address health inequities at the patient, practice, and community levels.
