Course Overview
Addressing Social Determinants of health, defined as inequalities in Social, Environmental and Economic conditions, according to WHO, can prevent approximately 85% of all premature deaths. Social Determinants of health are the most important aspect of medicine. The deliberate lack of focus on these underlying causes of health in standard medical education leads to unethical, harmful, and discriminatory care. This course will teach how to incorporate this essential knowledge in your clinical practice to provide dignified and equitable care.
  • Individuals will be able to understand and define Social Determinants of health.
  • Individuals will understand Social Determinants of Health as the leading cause of premature death.
  • Individuals will understand how addressing Social Determinants reduces morbidity and mortality in their patients.
  • Individuals will understand that by centralising Social Determinants of heath, patients will receive more dignified and less harmful care without having to over rely on prescription drugs, the third leading cause of death

    What People Are Saying

    This is an important perspective to keep in mind when examining your patient's root cause of disharmony and disease.

    Janice H.- United States of America

    Very thoughtful and important presentation.

    Kathryn F.- United States of America

    This is one of the best Ethics courses I have ever taken. It is done in such a lively manner that makes you want to participate in it. It is full of interesting clinical stories from both the author and other great medical professionals. I highly recommend this course.

    Teresa L.- Canada

    I would recommend this course with this teacher in particular to anyone wanting a better understanding of social determinants relating to healthcare. As Doctors of Oriental Medicine, we already regularly implement the practice of a complete assessment of a patient, not just the symptoms. This class is a good reminder.

    Lorella T.- United States of America

    This course reminds the practitioner that every patient they see brings not only their physical body and mind to the treatment room, but their entire social and emotional ecosystem as well.
