Description

Over the last 30 years, considerable attention has been paid in the clinical setting to cultural competency- the ability to mitigate against the effects of the sociocultural differences between clinicians and patients and to take into account how culture affects the symptoms presented or the patients’ attitude about health care. More recently, scholars and clinicians have encouraged those in practice or health professions training to focus not only on the behaviors and beliefs of cultural groups but more importantly to consider the structural determinants, prejudices, injustices and blind spots, the “pathologies of social systems” that affect health outcomes and the stigma experienced by patients. The session will introduce participants to the broad framework of structural competency and the five core structural competencies. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of structural issues on the treatment and management of diabetes for vulnerable populations.

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the structures that shape clinical interactions;
  2. Discuss the means of developing an extra-clinical language of structure;
  3. Rearticulate “cultural” formulations in structural terms;
  4. Explain the process of observing and imagining structural interventions; and
  5. Discuss the impact of structural issues on diabetes care for vulnerable populations.

Description

Management of diabetes can be affected by many factors including the type of job of the diabetic patient. More importantly, poor diabetes management can compromise a workers’ ability to perform their job duties. The standard of care to regulate blood glucose such as standardized medication, activity, and food regimens may not be possible for many workers, particularly those in low-wage jobs. There may be no place to store medication or food, breaks may be limited or not regularly be offered and following a food regimen while working may not be feasible. This webinar reviews how work can impact diabetes management and offers strategies and tools to assist diabetic patients in managing their disease at work. Results from a recent study with primary care providers will be shared to highlight new recommendations for clinical decision support.
