Building Antiracist Policies and Practices into Health Care Settings

Building Antiracist Policies and Practices into Health Care Settings
CE Credits

We’ve all heard the terms racism and antiracism. But what do they really mean for us as individuals and for the organizations where we work? And, for the purpose of the next CareQuest Institute webinar, how do they influence the care we provide to patients?  

In this webinar, Building Antiracist Policies and Practices into Health Care Settings, a panel of experts from oral health and primary care will explore the foundations of racism and how those foundations shape our care environments. They’ll also share practical strategies any organization can use to create policies and exhibit behaviors that will get us all closer to an equitable system.     

Learning Objectives:  

  • Define racism and antiracism.  
  • Identify policies and behaviors that promote antiracism in oral and primary health care settings.  
  • Explain how antiracist policies and behaviors can lead to health equity.
