Introduction to Population Health - New Free Course
A new approach of health care is emerging in this country in which multiple entities within the community work together to better address upstream determinants of health such as: the availability of employment in a community; the availability of public transportation; affordable health insurance; access to health care providers; affordable and safe housing; the presence or absence of air pollution; crime; full-service grocery stores supplying fresh fruits and vegetables; and more.
The approach focuses on the health of the population, and calls for action to improve the health outcomes for all Americans despite their gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability status, lesbian, sexual orientation, or geography.
To that end, “Introduction to Population Health” was developed in partnership with the Connecticut Nursing Collaborative-Action Coalition and the Connecticut League for Nursing, under a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This four-module, online self-paced course is to serve as a primer for nurses, nursing students and other healthcare providers to expand their knowledge of Population Health and transform their approach as to how patients and clients are cared for within the community.
