This course was designed following the Supporting clinicians to address health inequalities in practice report, released in March 2023. This report found that while clinicians often had awareness of health inequalities, they felt unable to address them in their practice.
Health inequalities are defined as ‘avoidable, unfair and systematic differences in health between different groups of people ’.
Every patient has their own story, and this is particularly important to consider for those at risk of health inequalities. Personalising care can ensure that we accomplish the most out of our interactions with patients to enhance their experience and outcomes. This makes it essential to take the time to holistically assess a patient’s background and circumstances to address their needs appropriately.
This e-learning aims to provide you with the knowledge of two principles – trauma-informed care and circle of influence – that you can proactively use to change your attitude and behaviour when managing patients who are experiencing, or are at risk of, health inequality.
