Symposia

SOCIAL ISOLATION: ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH, BIDIRECTIONAL RELATIONSHIP TO HEALTH CONDITIONS, AND HOW IT IMPACTS ACCESS AND DELIVERY OF CARE

  • Date:
  • Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
  • Track: Clinical Practice
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Moderator:  Julie Bynum, MD, MPH
Clinicians, while often aware of social isolation as a problem, may lack organizational support to help them care for isolated patients, especially when preventive and chronic disease management are adversely affected.  Learning Objectives: (1) define social isolation, its risk factors, and tools for measuring social isolation; (2) review how new ICD-10 codes will capture social barriers to accessing proper care and how this can help improve care; (3) describe how behavioral health and cognitive decline are associated with social isolation; and (4) describe how clinicians can put this information into practice.
