Health Equity Assignment
Select a population that faces health
disparities due to race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status or
simply has difficulty accessing health care because of lack of insurance or
because of geographic location such as living in a rural community. Conduct a literature search about
health disparities faced by your selected population. Determine best evidence practice and
guidelines for this population. Interview an individual from this selected
population. Explore the following questions with them: a) What
has their previous experience been like with health care? b) What
challenges have they encountered in health care? c) From
their perspective, what can be done to improve access to care, and healthcare
services? After you conduct your literature search
and interview, write a 2-3 page narrative/story. Key components of the project
include facts about this population (make sure to include your references),
health challenges faced by this population and ideas of how to improve the care
of this population and advance health equity.
