This quiz-based activity was updated and adapted for a hospitalist audience from an activity of the same name created by the American Board of Internal Medicine. 

SUMMARY

The Care for the Underserved quiz module focuses upon the evidence base around caring for diverse populations. SHM’s hope is that this activity will help physicians understand the challenges and opportunities in treating diverse populations and ultimately improve the care they deliver to all patients.

GOAL

To expose learners to questions that will provoke considerations about how care provided to underserved populations should be understood and adapted to meet their specific needs; supplementary references provided will provide for more in depth review of those topics. Learners will have new resources and references for addressing additional questions that may arise around care of underserved populations

TARGET AUDIENCE

This activity is designed for hospitalists. No prerequisites required.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After completing the module, the participant should be able to:

  1. Describe the impact of cultural competency training on clinicians.
  2. Identify three ways in which caring for underserved populations differs from other populations.
  3. State three strategies to improve the care they provide patients from underserved populations.
ACCREDITATION STATEMENT

The Society of Hospital Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
