Advancing Health Equity: Linking Quality and Equity in Quality Improvement Projects

In order to reduce health disparities and health care inequities in our patient populations, our actions must be part of a broader shift to build the culture of equity. Similar to building a culture of quality in our organizations, creating and sustaining a culture of equity takes time, teamwork, and continual attention. This webinar presents information from the Roadmap to Advance Health Equity developed by Advancing Health Equity: Leading Care, Payment and Systems Transformation (AHE). The webinar will discuss key topics including: discovering and prioritizing differences in care, outcomes, and/or experiences across patient groups; planning equity-focused projects; and measuring impact.
