Plenary - Social Determinants: At the Nexus of IPE and the CLE

Tuesday, August 20, 2019, 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Nicollet Grand Ballroom

The movement to pay attention to the social determinants of health (SDOH) is strong in health care, and the SDOH are now considered core to health and health care. These wide-ranging drivers that have implications for interprofessional clinical learning environments include: reducing readmissions to hospitals, optimal team composition to address underlying causes of disease, cost savings, value-added care, payment and performance metrics, innovative team-based delivery processes, and social justice.  This plenary will focus on three perspectives of the SDOH: business, national focus on complex care and social needs, and one academic health center’s experience scaling interprofessional education programs into systems-wide approaches.  Join leaders from UnitedHealth Group, the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, and the University of Utah for an interactive panel session examining the SDOH within interprofessional practice and education.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this plenary, participates will be able to:

  • Explain how social determinants may be used as common ground for advancing CLEs
  • Consider practical points of intersection between business, practice, and learning objectives in the CLE
