NIH Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Achieving Health Equity in Preventive Services
June 19-20, 2019

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health Office of Disease Prevention
 
Register for the free Pathways to Prevention (P2P) Workshop: Achieving Health Equity in Preventive Services. The workshop is open to the public and is designed for researchers, practitioners, and other professionals interested in clinical preventive services in a healthcare setting and issues of health equity. Registration is required, and attendees can join either in person at the Natcher Conference Center (Building 45) NIH Main Campus, Bethesda, Maryland  or via NIH VideoCast (in-person attendance is strongly encouraged).
  
Description
This P2P workshop will assess the available scientific evidence on achieving health equity in the use of clinical preventive services in a healthcare setting, focusing on the three leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. This workshop will specifically address the following questions:
  • What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of providers to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
  • What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of minority, rural, and other disadvantaged patient groups to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
  • What is the effectiveness of different approaches and strategies between providers and patients that connect and integrate evidence-based preventive practices for reducing disparities in preventive services?
  • What is the effectiveness of health information technologies and digital enterprises to improve the adoption, implementation, and dissemination of evidence-based preventive services in settings that serve disparity populations?
  • What is the effectiveness of interventions that healthcare organizations and systems implement to serve disparity populations to reduce disparities in preventive services use?
