Social determinants of health are the aspects of society beyond healthcare that affect health outcomes. As we strive to improve health of our patients, we need to understand these societal factors and work with the ones that impact our patients’ health statuses. Culture and cultural competency are one example of this approach. This unit will introduce you to this concept more broadly. By the end of this unit, you will be able to:

  • Define social determinants of health.
