Caregivers are increasingly expected to attend to the social determinants of health—a patient's education level, housing, food security, social support, access to technology and much more. Addressing the social context of a patient when medical care is delivered holds great promise, but there are also many challenges to doing it well.

This session, through presentation and small group discussion, will explore the promise and the pitfalls associated with incorporating social determinants of health.
