We Need Your Help to Build an SDOH Resource Guide

PQA is developing a social determinants of health (SDOH) resource guide that will document real-world SDOH services, including screening, referring or intervening, conducted by or involving pharmacists or pharmacies. The guide will provide details on interventions that are promising for improving the quality and safety of medication use.

We need your help to identify promising or proven interventions!

There is no current resource that catalogues pharmacist and pharmacy-centered SDOH services. This guide will provide health care professionals with ideas and examples of SDOH services they can implement.

To maximize the guide’s depth and value, PQA invites submissions to be considered for inclusion. Based on PQA member input provided at last November's Leadership Summit, we are most interested at this time in interventions that address:
  • Screening for Unmet Needs
  • Cost of Medications
  • Cultural or Literacy Barriers
The initial guide will focus on these areas, but we welcome submissions on other interventions.
You are invited to provide robust details, but if you only have limited information, we want that, too. We recognize that many SDOH efforts are in their early stages, or you may have only seen them in a presentation or news story.

Our staff will research any partial examples to develop a more complete profile of the intervention. Any submissions provided may be published in the guide and promoted in PQA’s communications or educational programs.

The initial guide will be published by the end of 2021, and we plan to update and expand it in the future. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at [email protected].
