440 Assessing Social Determinants of Health in Seriously Ill People to Create Viable Discharge Plans*

The World Health Organization defines social determinants of health as “conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life.” Attendees will learn about SDOH and how to assess for them in the incarcerated population. This information can support successful reentry by identifying services individuals might need to mitigate the impact of SDOH after discharge.

Educational Objectives:

Define social determinants of health

Identify trends in assessment of SDOH in various health care settings

Demonstrate three ways that SDOH data can be used to create value-based health care outcomes

Level: Basic
