Health equity is defined as everyone having a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible, an ethical and human rights principle that motivates us to eliminate health disparities. From building trusting relationships between patients and their healthcare providers, to dismantling racism that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) patients and healthcare providers encounter, to overcoming the perceived lack of trustworthiness of healthcare systems, the barriers to achieving equity are high.
This 3-part, monthly webinar series focuses on building the skills and knowledge base necessary to generate and sustain trust, to reduce or remove these barriers and achieve equitable health outcomes for everyone.
