AMA Releases Educational Resources to Advance Equity in Healthcare

AMA News Release (09/02/21)

The American Medical Association (AMA) has announced a series of continuing medical education (CME) and educational activities to promote equity in healthcare. Available on the AMA Ed Hub Health Equity Education Center and curated by the AMA's Center for Health Equity, these resources were designed by the AMA's Center for Health Equity and partner organizations. Collaborators include the American College of Radiology (ACR), COVID Black, the Fenway Institute, Howard Brown Health, SAGECare, and Stanford Medicine. Available modules include the AMA Center for Health Equity's Prioritizing Equity CME video series, which describes how COVID-19 and other determinants of health have affected marginalized communities. The series covers subjects including the root causes of health inequity; misinformation, trustworthiness, and tactics for managing vaccine hesitancy among patients and healthcare professionals; COVID-19's immediate and long-term mental health effects on minorities and marginalized communities; and an overview of racism in medicine. "By expanding equity-focused content on the AMA Ed Hub, we encourage everyone to do their part by proactively gaining the knowledge and skills necessary for advancing equity across the health system," said AMA Chief Health Equity Officer Aletha Maybank, MD, MPH. "Together, we can promote equitable opportunities, resources, conditions, and power for historically marginalized communities — as we strive for optimal health for all."
