Health Disparities and Cultural Competence Webinar Series 

Mental Illness Disparities

Date: Thursday, April 9, 2015

Time: 1:00 pm Eastern Time

Webinar Description: The stigma of mental illness among health sciences students is a well-known concern that has the potential for far-reaching negative consequences. Although mental illness stigma is often addressed in medical education, it is often unaddressed in pharmacy curricula. Interventions in medical school students have had mixed results, but contact based educational interventions have been shown to reduce the stigma health professional students expressed towards mental illness. In this program, we address the common myths about mental illness, describe two different methodologies for educational interventions with Pharm.D. students, as well as describe the creation of an evaluation tool based on surveys developed for students and health care providers.

Webinar Learning Objectives:

  • Describe and explain common misconceptions about patients with mental illness.
  • Identify and describe educational interventions to reduce mental illness stigma in health professional students.
  • Identify and implement evaluation processes for educational interventions addressing mental illness stigma.

    Health Literacy and Numeracy
     

    Documents: Webinar Slides

    Date: March 24, 2015

    Webinar Description: Numeracy is defined as the ability to understand and use numbers in daily life. When considered in the context of health literacy, numeracy plays a large role in patient decision making. Clinicians often use statistics when discussing risk, including incidence of adverse effects, complications from treatment and risk of disease development, such as heart disease. Patients may also be asked to interpret numbers to determine therapy, such as blood glucose management or calculating/measuring pediatric medication doses. While many clinicians are aware of the concept of health literacy, numeracy is often not considered. This presentation will highlight the importance of this concept. Available numeracy assessment tools will be discussed. Concepts to ensure clear communication regarding numeracy will be discussed, including available resources to aid clinicians.

    Webinar Learning Objectives:

    • Define health numeracy.
    • Describe available assessment tools for numeracy.
    • Discuss resources available to aid clinicians when discussing numeracy-related healthcare issues.
