Learning Objectives:
1. Describe evidence of inequity in healthcare, associated with race, ethnicity,
and other characteristics
2. Identify two or more effective strategies to measurably reduce inequity, such as disparities in healthcare processes, outcomes

Equity Grand Rounds at Northwestern Medicine
This is a quarterly Grand Rounds focusing on the many issues related to equity in healthcare. It will focus on disparities and equity in clinical care and patient access and service; diversity and inclusion in the workforce; health system/community interactions and relationships; and public policy changes and implications.

Northwestern Medicine Equity Grand Rounds brings together current literature and public policy with health system progress to engage our health system members in continuous learning and improvement.

There is widespread evidence of disparities and lack of equity in the US healthcare system. This series will educate our NM community about these problems and bring evidence from within the health system and external to it about interventions which can help us to make progress. Learners will develop new strategies for recognizing disparities in healthcare quality, diversity/inclusion and community support; selecting and implementing personal and/or organizational strategies to mitigate these disparities; and evaluating the results of these interventions.

A hallmark of the program is interdisciplinary dialogue. Panelists from diverse disciplines participate in the Rounds, including physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, allied health professionals and administrative leaders. After listening to a panel s brief presentation on an identified topic, the audience are invited to share their questions and broader related issues. As always, our programs will leave ample time for questions, discussions and sharing your experiences and insights with your colleagues.
