Report Release Webinar: Committee on Unequal Treatment Revisited

At the 34th SPN Annual Conference, closing keynote speaker, Vincent Guilamo- Ramos, PhD, MPH, LCSW, ANP-BC, PMHNP-BC, FAAN, shared information about work being done at the National Academies.  Learn more about the Report on Unequal Treatment Revisited through an upcoming free webinar.

Webinar Details: Racial and ethnic inequities in health and health care impact individual well-being, contribute to millions of premature deaths, and cost the United States hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Addressing these inequities is vital to improving the health of the nation’s most disadvantaged communities—and will also help to achieve optimal health for all. In 2003, the Institute of Medicine examined the impacts of health care disparities and proposed solutions in Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial Bias and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care. Because disparities persist, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened an expert committee to revisit the 2003 report. The committee’s report reviews the major drivers of health care disparities, provides insight into successful and unsuccessful interventions, identifies gaps in the evidence base, and makes recommendations to advance health equity.
