It’s no secret that our healthcare systems are built to react to sickness and health events—not to keep people healthy in the first place.
If we want to get serious about producing health for our patients, we have to start shifting our healthcare system to address social determinants of health.
But, how is such a seismic shift even possible—and what’s your role as an occupational therapy practitioner in this new era?
In this one hour course, we will look at a journal article with a proposal for mobilizing our hospital systems to address social determinants of health.
Then, I am thrilled to be joined by Joy Doll, an OT who has been working on the front lines of addressing SDOH. She will share her insights into the movement that is already happening, and how occupational therapists can be involved.
