Resource Summary: This workshop introduces the Structural Competency framework and key concepts like structural violence and racism, and structural interventions. This workshop aims to provide you with the ability to discern how structures impact the health of patients and communities, and to allow participants to apply case studies relevant to health center programs.
Resource Details: A resource meant for health center, PCA, HCCN, and other healthcare organization staff at all levels, this workshop moves beyond social determinants of health and examines the root causes of inequities and subsequent health disparities in vulnerable populations. Participants will be provided with concrete definitions and examples of structural violence, structural racism, and structural interventions. Facilitators walk through two case studies to help participants understand and identify the ways in which structures impact patient health and healthcare delivery.
