Integrating social determinants of health into transitions of care involves systematically considering social factors that impact a patient’s health and well-being during critical periods of care transitions. Whether at hospital discharge, transfer to another facility or a switch in healthcare provider, understanding SDOH will enhance your patient’s continuity of care. Attend this session to see examples of ways pharmacists have successfully integrated SDOH into TOC practices.
Discuss how social determinants of health (SDOH) influence patients’ experiences during transitions of care (TOC) and contribute to health disparities.
Demonstrate strategies for identifying and addressing a patients’ SDOH at TOC.
