The existence of health disparities in our health care system is well documented. Throughout the Catholic health ministry, care providers are taking steps to identify and eliminate health disparities in their patient populations. During this webinar, participants learn more about how one Catholic system, Trinity Health, is working to achieve equity of care.

Equity of care has been an imperative at Trinity Health since 2008. When research revealed gaps in care at one hospital, leadership sought to identify — and eliminate — gaps in care at all Trinity Health Ministry Organizations. The process linked cultural competency with clinical care delivery, improved clinical and service outcomes for all patients — minority and non-minority — and supported Trinity Health's commitment to providing culturally and linguistically competent patient care. Learn from Trinity’s experience how to determine whether and where health disparities exist in your facility and how to move forward to ensure all your patients receive quality health care.
