What you'll learn

Clinicians will learn current best practices for identifying and treating patients with substance use related problems.

During this module, we provide a deep exploration of how to deliver equitable care to vulnerable populations. We define key terminology used in this field, describe systematic and psychosocial factors that affect people’s health, call on learners to reflect upon their potential biases around working with vulnerable patient populations, and offer specific strategies and approaches that promote equitable care. We hope learners leave with a greater understanding of themselves and how they can play a role in advocating for more equitable care at both the individual patient level and the more macro, systematic level.

What you'll do:

  1. Define terms related to treating vulnerable populations, including equity, bias, intersectionality, and harm reduction
  2. Explain how the social determinants of health affect patients struggling with substance use disorders
  3. Reflect on how you can help reduce bias and promote equity at the individual patient level and more macro-level
