Viewing Health Equity Through Multiple Determinants of Health Lenses


This webinar is the first in a series on health equity. It will address health equity’s critical aspects, including various determinants of health and how they intersect. An oral health care vignette will be used to examine these intersecting determinants. Additionally, a new model for examining these intersecting determinants of health will be provided. We explore accreditation, legislative and collaborative care/interprofessional education (IPE) implications related to multiple determinants of health and health equity in developing strategic solutions to reduce barriers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define health equity and the determinants of health.
  • Examine intersectionality within a health equity framework.
  • Highlight new intersectional determinants of health model.
  • Review the accreditation, collaborative care/IPE and legislative implications for addressing health equity.
