Statement of Need

Disparities in joint health, including access to orthopedic care and rates of surgical intervention for disabling osteoarthritis, exist among racial and ethnic underserved and underrepresented populations. To establish equitable joint health care, it is critical not only to understand the role that race, bias, and social determinants of health education play but also to implement standardized screening, empathy, cultural sensitivity, and personalized care.

In this CME Outfitters BriefCase, Drs. Peek and Brown will guide learners through a patient case scenario reflective of the impact of biases, disparities, and health inequities that reduce the quality of joint health care for racial and ethnic underserved patients. This program will provide actionable strategies, empowering attendees to recognize factors that contribute to care inequities and implement changes in practice to improve access to tools and treatment for patients with joint health concerns.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the impact of health inequities on patients with joint health concerns.
  • Individualize treatment strategies that include assessment of SDoH for optimal outcomes in patients with joint pain.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists specializing in rheumatology, dermatology, orthopedics, surgery, pain, anesthesiology, or primary care.
