Disparities remain a challenge in health care says American College of Physicians
Date:7/26/2010

must be encouraged. A diverse health care workforce that is more representative of the patients it serves is crucial to promote understanding among physicians and other health care professionals and patients, facilitate quality care, and promote equity in the health care system.
  • Inequities in education, housing, job security, and environmental health must be erased if health disparities are to be effectively addressed. Social determinants of health are a significant source of health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities.
  • Efforts must be made to reduce the effect of environmental stressors that disproportionately threaten to harm the health and well-being of racial and ethnic communities. And,
  • More research and data collection related to racial and ethnic health disparities is needed to empower stakeholders to better understand and address the problem of disparities.

    "Racial and ethnic disparities in health care present a difficult challenge that results from the interaction of multiple complex factors, for which there are no easy solutions," concluded Dr. Ralston. "However we as physicians, and as a society, have a moral imperative that appropriate resources are devoted to responding to the challenge."
