Answer the questions below and create a 15—20 slide powerpoint
1. To reduce the health disparities in affected communities, use evidence-based intervention. This intervention should address root causes and treat them all at their individual, social, institutional, structural, and systemic levels. It involves using existing data to find gaps in healthcare and designing targeted strategies for addressing these problems. Partnerships between different stakeholders like advocates, payers, and medical providers can ensure resources are optimally used to increase access to high-quality healthcare for all.
2. Create culturally sensitive education initiatives that emphasize preventative measures for the population, such as nutrition education, immunizations and smoking cessation. It is also important to offer support services that are tailored to each individual’s needs, such as language barriers and transportation issues which might prevent certain people from receiving the necessary care.
3. Provide healthcare services in cost-effective ways while increasing accessibility. Utilizing technology-enabled solutions (ehealth/telemedicine) for remote visits can optimize time spent with patients and increase efficiency when a physical visit isn’t an option due distance or financial constraints..
4. Stakeholders who are familiar with the cultural background of patients or have worked with particular minorities can help to increase provider diversity. They will also be able to provide insights into treatment methods that best suit these communities. Utilizing insights from medical associations that represent different minority groups, like the National Medical Association (NMA), can provide invaluable insight on how to serve diverse patient population while minimising health disparities. NMA has developed evidence-based guidelines specifically for addressing inequities caused by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
