“HHS Action Plan to Reduce Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities: A Nation
Free of Disparities in Health and Health Care,” located on the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services – Office of Minority Health website.
In addition to discussing the role of
unconscious bias, discrimination, and structural racism in health care, it is
important to consider what can be done to change it. In this document, the HHS
outlines their action plan. I encourage you to review it, and reflect here.
Why do certain population
groups experience differences in care? Discuss the role of unconscious bias,
discrimination, and structural racism in health care. Describe how these
factors contribute to health disparities and health outcomes. Discuss how
determinants of health, such as political, social, or economic factors also
contribute to health outcomes. 275 words.
