Health equity can only be achieved through racial equity, especially in the US. Health equity and racial equity are not just desired outcomes, but also interdependent processes that necessarily require a commitment to improving the distribution of power and resources within and across societies.
This module provides learners with a foundational understanding of key terms and concepts related to health equity and racial equity. Learners will understand how racial equity and health equity concepts challenge conventional perspectives about patient care and medical practice, including the role of race vs racism. The module will also review the history of organized medicine in the US vis-à-vis structural racism and economic inequity.
The module highlights and summarizes strategies that health professionals and systems can implement and support to dismantle structural racism and economic inequity. Learners will understand these strategies as part of a cycle of continuous learning, improvement and accountability necessary to support practice, community and societal transformation that advances racial equity and health equity.
This is module two of the six-part Upstreamist Core Competencies Series.
