AMCP Talks: Best Practices in Addressing Health Disparities- Nexus 2022

Please note this session is not accredited for continuing pharmacy education credit.

Course Description:

AMCP is proud to once again offer AMCP Talks, an innovative education opportunity that mixes short, focused presentations with an interactive panel discussion. For AMCP Nexus 2022, AMCP Talks will focus on targeted areas addressing health disparities.

Together, we have a moral imperative to dismantle systemic and structural racism that has resulted in significant racial disparities in health status and access to quality care. As we learn more about the existing challenges, we become more aware of potential strategies to overcome them. With these learnings come successes, the development of “good and better” practices, but also failures and the discovery of additional challenges. Health disparities will continue to be an area we can always learn and improve upon.

AMCP advocates for measures that eliminate inequities resulting from racism and discrimination in every facet of our profession, and for health equity in marginalized communities to eliminate disproportionate health outcomes. Please join us for this interactive, engaging discussion and support AMCP’s commitment to providing access for all.

During this session, participants will hear from managed care professionals discussing specific examples of how they successfully addressed health disparities in the following topic areas: community engagement, clinical trial inclusion, data collection and analysis, and formulary management.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
  1. Explain the significant role community engagement plays in addressing health disparities.
  2. Describe one strategy to include disparate communities in clinical trials.
  3. Summarize the value of data collection and analysis in order to address health disparities.
  4. Discuss how to incorporate various aspects of health disparities in formulary management.
  5. Describe real-world examples and best practices of utilizing community engagement, clinical trials, data collection, and formulary management in tackling health disparity challenges.
