Description

Measuring what Matters in Social Determinants of Health for Chronic Illness


There is a known association between social determinants of health (SDoH) and chronic disease disparities, and between chronic disease and health related quality of life (HRQL). Far less is known about associations among SDoH, chronic disease and health outcomes, including HRQL. This symposium proposes to highlight conceptual relationships among these concepts and stimulate research ideas, including novel methodologies to analyze relationships between SDoH and HRQL for people with chronic illness.

   DAY TWO                                         


Session 4: Research in Chronic Conditions

This session will follow a series of clinical and public health research presentations documenting the relationship between SDoH and HRQL for individuals living with diverse chronic illnesses.
Objective:
  • Based on research, learn how SDoH applies to HRQL and health outcomes in persons with cardiovascular disease, autoimmune inflammatory disorders, mental illness, and for transgender and gender-diverse individuals.
Speakers:
  • Justin Abbatemarco, MD, Assistant Professor at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Staff Physician at the Mellen Center, United States
  • Foster Osei Baah, MS-PhD RN, Assistant Professor, Emory University, United States
  • Jan R. Boehnke, PhD, Reader, University of Dundee, United Kingdom
  • Manraj Kaur, PhD, Investigator, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, United States

Session 5: Implementation Science: Application to Clinical Care and Policy

Short presentations will discuss the realities of addressing SDoH, controversies related to SDoH including who is responsible for delivering interventions (communities, health care providers, health organizations/systems, health insurers, government agencies) and how implementation science can guide the translation of SDoH into practice and policy. A moderated Q&A and audience Q&A will follow to close out the event.
Objectives:
  • Discuss who is responsible for driving policy delivering interventions
  • Understand how implementation science can guide translation of SDoH research into practice and policy
Speakers:
  • David Chambers, D.Phil, Deputy Director for Implementation Science, National Cancer Institute, United States
  • J. Gmerice Hammond, MD MPH, Cardiologist at Washington University School of Medicine, United States
  • Jeff Micklos, Executive Director, Health Care Transformation Task Force, United States

    Dr. Hammond is a cardiologist and health services and policy researcher at Washington University in St Louis. The goal of her research is to reduce inequities in cardiovascular disease. Specifically, her work examines the role that health policy implementation plays in race and socioeconomic-based inequities in cardiovascular disease outcomes. Her current work is focused on gaining a better understanding of how payment policies influence the implementation strategies used to manage high-risk, high-cost conditions for populations made socially vulnerable due to systemic and structural violence, specifically racism and chronic socioeconomic deprivation.
