We’ve heard it all our lives. To be fair you should treat everybody the same. But the challenge is that everybody is not the same – and these differences can lead to critical disparities not only in how patients access health care, but their outcomes as well.
The reality is burden of illness, premature death, and disability disproportionately affects certain populations.1 MyDiversePatients.com features robust educational resources to help support you in addressing these disparities. You will find:
- CME learning experiences about disparities, potential contributing factors and opportunities for you to enhance care.
