Social Determinants of Health and Health Literacy for Inpatients - a Team Approach
Description: Sepsis is the leading cause for hospital readmissions at OU Health – University of Oklahoma Medical Center with social determinants of health (SDoH) contributing and disproportionally affecting the Asian, Native American, and African American populations as well as those with domestic partners and those being discharged to law enforcement. Health literacy is an often missed key component of patient education. We have created an inpatient student-led interprofessional curriculum that seeks to expose students to SDoH, health literate patient education, community resources, and to better understand health disparities within the inpatient setting.
We will be addressing health disparities and how they can be reduced by addressing SDoH and health literacy within an at-risk population.
1. Describe health literacy, SDoH and how to screen patients within an interprofessional team setting
2. Identify health literate patient education
3. Develop an IPE inpatient curriculum that addresses health disparities
Participants will gain an understanding of how to devise their own interprofessional curriculum within their practice settings to reduce health disparities.
Learning strategy: Implementation plan to include demonstration of our patient simulation and inpatient activities that incorporates the screening tools and patient education tools. Participants will then brainstorm in small groups and create an actionable worksheet with tips for next steps.
