Event description

Description

This P2P workshop will assess the available scientific evidence on achieving health equity in the use of clinical preventive services in a health care setting, focusing on the three leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. This workshop will specifically address the following questions:

  • What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of providers to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
  • What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of minority, rural, and other disadvantaged patient groups to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
  • What is the effectiveness of different approaches and strategies between providers and patients that connect and integrate evidence-based preventive practices for reducing disparities in preventive services?
  • What is the effectiveness of health information technologies and digital enterprises to improve the adoption, implementation, and dissemination of evidence-based preventive services in settings that serve disparity populations?
  • What is the effectiveness of interventions that health care organizations and systems implement to serve disparity populations to reduce disparities in preventive services use?
