  • Microresearch: Promoting Scholarly Activity That Addresses Health
           Disparities in Rural Health Professional Education Programs
    • Abstract: Recruitment of rural primary care providers is critical to reducing health inequities disfavoring rural Americans.1 Research experiences in rural settings can expose interested health professional trainees to rural health care while preparing them as future leaders for improvement in rural health outcomes. However, research experiences within rural communities and outside home institutions are rare. The costs and time commitment associated with research in less traditional settings may pose a barrier to exposure to rural health research. Since 2018, the Collaborative for Rural Primary care Research, Education, and Practice (Rural PREP) has sponsored "microresearch," an innovative mentored research experience for ... Read More

    • Abstract: One key to achieving health and health equity is active participation by those individuals and communities most affected by inequity in health care.1 Rural populations experience significant disparities in health outcomes and access to care in comparison with urban populations, a fact that has become all the more apparent in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.2 Academic researchers seeking to prepare a rural health care workforce with a research background can unintentionally limit the effectiveness of their work in a wide variety of ways: by struggling to choose a topic that is relevant to students or a project with a feasible study design; incompletely understanding the meaning of results; or failing to share their ...

  • Communities of Practice: Transforming Medical Education and Clinical
           Practice for Vulnerable Populations
    • Abstract: Social learning theorist Etienne Wenger-Trayner1 defines communities of practice (CoP) as groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and who learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. The author aligns his creation of the idea of communities of practice with social learning theory, which looks at the social nature of human learning through the lenses of anthropology and social theory.2–5 Wenger's notion of the concept of community of practice is well aligned with the systems tradition.6 Within itself, a community of practice can be seen and implemented as a single social system. Several communities of practice can be defined as a complex social system constituted by ... Read More

  • Systematic Review of Opioid Use Disorder Treatment Training for Medical
           Students and Residents
    • Abstract: In the United States, 46,802 people died in 2018 from opioid overdose, accounting for approximately 70% of all drug overdose deaths in the U.S.1 This is significantly higher than the number dying in car crashes that year, and the rate of death in some states is triple or even quadruple the rate of car crashes deaths.2 Two factors have contributed greatly to the high death toll. First, there is currently a very a high frequency of use, with 11.4 million Americans reporting opioid misuse in the past year.3 Second, the high potency and availability of synthetic opioid overdose is a significant contributor to the rise in fatal overdose. Synthetic opioids can be 10 to 1,000 times stronger than heroin, and two out of ... Read More

  • A Systematic Review of the Effectiveness of Interventions Designed to
           Teach U.S. Medical Students to Address Interpersonal Violence across the
           Life Course
    • Abstract: Interpersonal violence (IV) is "the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against another person, or against a group or community that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, stunted emotional development, or deprivation"1 and commonly presents from birth to death, across the life course, and within the health care system. It occurs as a single, intermittent, or ongoing set of events that can result in acute, reoccurring, or chronic physical and mental health injury, long-term disability, and death. The U.S.-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first identified IV as a leading public health problem in the mid- 1980s and ... Read More

  • Curricular Interventions in Medical Schools for Assessing Adverse
           Childhood Experience
    • Abstract: Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) were originally defined by Fellitti, Anda et al., in 19981 as a cumulative index of 11 adverse types of events that combined five measures of child abuse and child neglect (i.e., physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical neglect, and emotional neglect) associated with six measures of household dysfunction (i.e., exposure to household intimate partner violence, parental divorce or separation, parental incarceration, a household member with substance abuse problems, and a household member with mental illness). Adverse childhood experiences largely refer to experiences that took place before a person attains the age of 18 years old. Different definitions of ACEs have ... Read More

Kania and Kramer1[p.4]Kania and Kramer describe collective impact initiatives as centralized and structured processes that can successfully address multiple social issues.1 They involve critical groups of people from different sectors who engage in long-term commitments to solve a specific social issue.

  • Oral Health is Health: The Future is Now
    • Abstract: The 2000 U.S. Surgeon General's Report on the State of Oral Health in America described a "silent epidemic of oral diseases affecting (America's) most vulnerable populations."1[p.1,Exec.Summ] As we await the release of the 2020 Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health, one wonders what has changed. Underserved and vulnerable populations still suffer disproportionately from oral disease and its ramifications.2 Oral health is more than teeth; it encompasses taste, ability to chew, proper nutrition, appearance, employability, and social interaction.3 Good oral health is an essential component of one's quality of life. Conversely, poor oral health may result in caries (tooth decay), periodontal disease, orofacial pain ... Read More

  • "Becoming Proximal" in Preclinical Medical Education: Community Engaged
           Learning Addressing Disparities in Care
    • Abstract: The SARS-CoV-2 virus has led to a worldwide public health crisis revealing widespread and deep health disparities in the U.S.1 Marginalized and underserved populations are disproportionately affected by SARS-CoV-2 in the U.S.2,3 One major therapeutic directive is to practice "social distancing" or "physical distancing" as a way to reduce the transmission of the virus.4 Most medical visits have moved online, limiting the proximity between physicians and patients. Here, we reflect on both the physical and social distance already present in medicine between physicians, health systems, and communities. We all find ourselves now in a moment when it is critical to think about distance and proximity as we foster them in ... Read More

  • An Organic Approach to Health Professions Education and Health Equity:
           Learning In and With Underserved Communities
    • Abstract: Since the Flexner Report was published in 1910, medical education has taken a primarily technical approach to preparing students for science-based medical practice, rather than a humanistic and relational one.1 Unfortunately, adequately addressing the complex problems leading to population health disparities and achieving health equity is not possible through a technical approach alone.2Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, who brought organic architecture to the world of building design, I wish to suggest an organic approach to health equity, through education and training of a workforce for rural and underserved urban communities in those places and in ways that are community-engaged. Frank Lloyd Wright designed ... Read More

    • Abstract: Over the last several decades, the medical profession and its professional organizations have integrated learning, teaching, and addressing the social determinants of health as part of their approach to health beyond health care. Medical education has increasingly emphasized a broader understanding of patients' lives and experience to include social determinants of health, as well as the potential influence of provider attitudes and health care systems on the health of diverse populations.1 The language of instruction has also changed, with medical schools routinely incorporating discussions of cultural awareness, implicit bias, and health inequities into their curricula.

           Health Equity
    • Abstract: Despite decades of research highlighting disparities in health and calling for action, health and health care inequities still leave patients and communities vulnerable.1,2,3 The mismatch between primary care education, which is designed for the current health care delivery system, and clinical practice, which requires renewed focus on both population health and health equity, is a key driver.4 Primary care trainees need the knowledge, skills, and attitude to promote patient-centeredness, work effectively and efficiently in health care teams, use big data, and engage community partners to improve health outcomes. Graduates' practice is tightly linked to patterns learned in training,5 suggesting that more experience ... Read More

    • Abstract: The primary care workforce is an essential component of any high-functioning health care system. A growing body of evidence associates a strong primary care work-force with reduced mortality, higher quality of care, and lower health care spending.1,2,3,4 Despite this evidence, access to primary care in the U.S. remains challenging with more than 81 million people living in a Primary Care Health Professional Shortage Area.5Training programs affect the number and type of providers, their practice location, the populations they serve and the quality and cost of care they provide.6,7,8,9 The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) mission is to improve health outcomes and address health disparities ...

           How Integrated is the Training'
    • Abstract: The unmet need for behavioral health services in the U.S. grew considerably from 4.3 million in 1997 to 7.2 million in 2010 with rates five times higher for the uninsured than for privately insured persons.1 Those facing unemployment, poverty, housing and food insecurity, and other negative social determinants of health are at increased vulnerability for depression, anxiety, and substance abuse but are the least likely to have access to timely, much less adequate, behavioral health services.2 Fortunately, integrated behavioral health (IBH) in primary care has been an important part of the nation's answer to the challenges of the imbalance between the population mental health needs and access to evidence-based ...

           Residents' Perspectives on a Social Determinants of Health Curriculum
    • Abstract: Social determinants of health are the conditions in which we are born, live, age, work and die, and they contribute to the health inequities we see around us.1,2 These disparities in health care and health outcomes between populations of different socioeconomic class, geographical distribution as well as race/ethnicity can be mitigated by identifying and addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH). In recent years, the role and responsibility of the physician in advancing health equity and engaging in advocacy have been widely discussed in academic literature.3,4 In addition, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) mandates training of residents and fellows in health care ...

Rural populations suffer disproportionate rates of chronic disease and limited access to services compared with their urban and often better-insured counterparts.1 Safety-net settings in urban and rural areas serve patients that often have complex physical, behavioral, and social conditions and limited financial resources.2One strategy to resolve health workforce gaps ...

    • Abstract: The National Institutes of Health defines "healthcare disparities" as diff erences in access to or availability of facilities and services, while "health disparities" refer to the variation in rates of disease occurrence and disabilities across demographic, socioeconomic, and/or geographically defined population groups.1 Health professions schools are teaching about these disparities in a variety of ways, which include focusing on various social determinants of health (for a few broadly stated examples, homelessness, poverty, and race) while terms such as oppression, racism, and sexism have been muted.2 Jonathan Metzl and Helena Hansen advocate for medical education that includes more information about how ...

  • A Framework for Transforming Primary Care Health Care Professions
           Education and Training to Promote Health Equity
    • Abstract: In the United States (U.S.), there continues to be excessive preventable premature deaths and other poor health outcomes in socioeconomically disadvantaged groups.1,2 This is exemplified by disproportionately high mortality rates from the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic among members of racial and ethnic minority groups.3 The ideal, health equity, is the absence of avoidable differences in health outcomes among people according to social, economic, demographic, geographic or by other means of stratification.1,4,5 Unfortunately, morbidity and longevity are needlessly predestined by socio-cultural, geographic, and economic factors. Health inequities have persisted throughout recorded medical history ... Read More

    • Abstract: The growing gap between the racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic makeup of medical school classes and that of the general population means medical education is slipping out of reach for many students from disadvantaged and underrepresented in medicine (URiM) backgrounds.1 Such inequitable representation may contribute to health disparities as URiM physicians are more likely to provide care for patients of color and to practice in high-need areas with fewer health services.2–4 In addition, patients from minority backgrounds report better communication and understanding, greater satisfaction, and better adherence when they are cared for by racially and linguistically concordant physicians.5–8 Less than 10% of medical ...

  • Promoting Health Careers Among Rural K–16 Students: A Mixed-Method Study
           to Describe Pathway Programs
    • Abstract: Rural students in kindergarten through college (K–16) lack equal access to educational and social capital resources needed to pursue health careers.1–3 Health careers, particularly those requiring a post-baccalaureate degree, necessitate a solid foundation in mathematics and science. Compared with urban students, rural students on average begin high school at a lower level of mathematics, have less access to advanced placement mathematics, and thus end high school with unequal preparation to succeed in college-level coursework.4 One reason for this is that rural school districts struggle to attract and keep teachers with backgrounds in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, which leads to fewer course offerings for ...

  • Developing Equity Report Cards for Residents Training in Primary Care
    • Abstract: Health equity, defined as "the principle underlying a commitment to reduce—and, ultimately, eliminate—disparities in health and in its determinants, including social determinants,1 should be considered a crucial component of health care quality.1,2 However, attention to this topic within most graduate medical education (GME) training programs is sparse. Based on data collected from site visits to nearly 300 GME training programs from 2012 through 2015, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) noted that there is a "substantive deficiency" in preparing residents to identify health disparities or promote health equity.3 The ACGME concluded: "The experience from site visits compellingly ...

    • Abstract: Since the launch of the World Health Organization's Commission on Social Determinants of Health in March 2005, it has become increasingly apparent how influential socioeconomic and political factors are in shaping health outcomes of individuals and communities.1,2 It is estimated that medical care is responsible for only 10%–15% of preventable mortality in the United States.3,4 Given this significance, health care delivery systems have begun investing in efforts to identify and address unmet health-related social needs in an effort to improve outcomes.5–7 Geographic information systems (GIS)—where geographic information is integrated with software programs so that spatial information can be created, stored ...

  • Challenges and Best Practices for Implementing Rurally Targeted Admissions
           in U.S. Medical Schools
    • Abstract: Many rural areas lack an adequate physician supply, which contributes to health disparities and poorer health outcomes in rural populations than in urban settings.1,2 This is especially true for rural minority populations.3 Aging rural populations and an aging rural physician workforce will exacerbate this inequity.4 By placing more graduates into rural practice, existing and future health disparities could be mitigated. One potential strategy to address this workforce need is targeted medical school admissions policies and practices that could lead to higher rates of physicians entering rural practice.The admissions process, including recruitment and selection strategies, involves several different activities. ...

  • Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder in Primary Care: Opportunities and
           Challenges for Sustainable Training Programs
    • Abstract: Drug overdose deaths and years of life lost from opioid use disorder (OUD)—from both prescription drugs and illicit substance use—have steadily increased in the United States since 1999 to reach epidemic levels over the ensuing two decades.1,2 Among the five leading causes of death, the potential excess (avoidable) deaths from unintentional injuries stood out, seeing a double-digit increase from 2010–2017 primarily due to drug poisoning including opioid overdose.3 The drug overdose death rate slowed for the first time in 2018 due to a decline in deaths involving heroin, methadone, and some prescriptive opioids, though not among synthetic forms (e.g., fentanyl, tramadol) which saw a one-year rise of 10%.1 Despite ...

  • Primary Care and Oral Health Integration: Comparing Training Across
    • Abstract: Dental disease is highly prevalent in the United States, while also being highly preventable.1,2 Oral disease disproportionately affects vulnerable populations, members of minority groups, and rural dwellers.2,3 For example, Black and Hispanic people experience dental decay at twice the rate of non-Hispanic White people. Similarly Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic Black people have the highest rates of periodontitis.4 This can be attributed to many barriers, the strongest of which are high costs of dental treatment, other competing health issues, and limited access to care.5 Currently 74 million Americans have no dental coverage compared with 27.5 million without medical insurance, resulting in greater patient ...
