How Structural Racism Works — Racist Policies as a Root Cause of U.S. Racial Health Inequities | NEJM

"Faculty and students need a more complete view both of U.S. history and of the ways in which medicine and public health have participated and continue to participate in racist practices. Reflection includes recognition of harms arising from the uncritical use of racial categories, which reinforces implicit assumptions that racial differences are genetic in origin. Furthermore, it includes measuring the success of interventions in terms of how well they narrow inequitable gaps in health (here, between Black people and White people) instead of focusing solely on the overall population. Rigorous, clear standards for publishing research on racial health inequities have been proposed. Organized medicine and public health have a long history of opposing desegregation and broader access to care (e.g., Medicare), of barring Black physicians, of championing scientific racism, and of enshrining race as a biologic variable. Our fields have much to regret, and we have much still to offer to right our historical wrongs. Let’s not sit on the sidelines."

WEBINAR: Outbreak! A Classroom Simulation Of A Unified Command Response To A Progressing Epidemic

Join APTR to discuss an interprofessional education (IPE) experience that provides students from public health, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and clinical mental health the opportunity to collaborate as members of a unified command response team to a progressing infectious disease outbreak. The speakers will share the competencies, learning objectives, simulation and assessment materials that were developed and used to meet the curriculum goals of multiple health professions disciplines.

This educational activity also provides a unique opportunity for students in clinical mental health counseling to engage interprofessionally in a simulation that encourages the contribution of their knowledge of the effects of trauma and uncertainty on community-level resilience. The activity focuses on population health and community-based practice rather than patient triage and care.
