Authors: Collins L, Sicks S, Hass RW, Vause-Earland T, Ward J, Newsome C, Khan M Abstract In the United States, similar to other high-income countries, patients with complex health and social needs comprise a disproportionate amount of healthcare costs. Despite their frequent inpatient and emergency room usage, these patients receive ineffective care for their medical, social and behavioral needs, which often result from social determinants of health (SDoH). As the international dialogue on the importance of SDoH on health outcomes peaks, innovative strategies for teaching learners how to deliver care to patients w...

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States and in North Carolina (NC), where the disease disproportionately impacts traditionally underrepresented race and ethnic groups, those who live in rural communities, the impoverished, and medically disenfranchised and/or health-disparate populations at high-risk for cancer. These populations have worse cancer outcomes and are less likely to be participants in clinical research and trials. It is critical for cancer centers and other academic health centers to understand the factors that ...
