These trainings are a requirement from the Louisiana Department of Health for providers who contract with Medicaid Managed Care Organizations. Below are the workshops included in this course. Full attendance for each workshop is required to receive continuing education credit. Attendance from only one (1) regional “Justice is Part of the Job” workshop is needed to fulfill requirements.

 

Justice is Part of the Job: Understanding the Social Forces that Affect Health
Offered Regionally 
This course introduces the biological bridge that links social differences to health disparities and explores how those social differences result from a long history of policy choices that deliberately left racial and ethnic minorities at a disadvantage. The first part of the lecture explores how social inequality produces a stress response that, over time, causes diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and stroke. The second part explores the lives and family histories of two children who inherit social inequalities that produce different health outcomes.

 

First, Do No Harm: Understanding Bias in Healthcare
Our brains evolved for bias. The drive to find nutritious foods in a world filled with potentially lethal options produced a brain that prioritizes the familiar and assumes patterns are true. The result is that we belong to a species that defaults to status quo patterns of social power. The result for healthcare providers can be forms of bias that produce disparities in the quality of clinical care offered to stigmatized individuals. This course introduces ways we can reduce defensiveness about bias so that we can take responsibility for it and mitigate its effects. Our evolutionary heritage also left us not only with bias but also with ways to train our intuitions to disrupt it.

 

Change: From Learning About Equity to Building Equity
The concept of health disparities is not new. Since at least the 16th century, politicians, ‘scientists,’ and colonial authorities have explored divergences in the health of indigenous, colonial, and often slave populations. Early medical journals in the United States were filled with descriptions of the poor health of African slaves. Yet, in the past several decades, this long-known reality has been transformed into a ‘problem’ for our major health care, political, scientific, and philanthropic institutions. Yet, knowledge about health inequality and the social determinants of health does nothing to build durable health equity infrastructure. This talk will explore change mechanisms that can shift health equity from curriculum to healthcare practice.
