Eliminating Racial Disparities

This program will provide physicians with an understanding of the causes of healthcare disparity and tools to help achieve healthcare equity.

Eliminating Racial Disparities: What Can You Do?

While the health of Americans overall has improved dramatically over the last century, these gains have not been shared equally, with racial and ethnic minorities continuing to have worse health outcomes. Examples of this include higher rates of hypertension, myocardial infarctions, strokes, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease and lower life expectancy see in black individuals; and the increased rates of diabetes and infant mortality rate seen in Native Americans.

Education on healthcare disparities has focused on statistics and awareness. To address this issue effectively, this program will provide physicians with an understanding of the causes of healthcare disparity and tools to help achieve healthcare equity. Some topics covered:

  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Disparities in the COVID-19 Epidemic
  • Eliminating Disparities
  • What Providers Can Do To Overcome Disparities

Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting

This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic.

Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know

Patients with underlying health conditions such as lung cancer are at greater risk for infection or complications from COVID-19. Because of this increased risk, it is important that these patients are carefully managed, with telemedicine replacing in-person visits where possible. However, monitoring patients via telemedicine requires special attention, particularly because symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to common adverse events associated with lung cancer treatment.

This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic, including information on the pathophysiology of Sars-Cov-2, the risk of infection in patients with lung cancer, and strategies to manage patient care and counsel through telemedicine. Some topics covered:

  • The Pathophysiology of COVID-19
  • Patient and Disease Features that Increase Risk of COVID-19 Infection and Complications in Patients with Lung Cancer
  • Recommendations for Managing Patients with Lung Cancer in the COVID-19 Pandemic
