Quality Forum: PQA Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Resource Guide
Thursday, January 27, 2022, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
Category: Education

The PQA Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Resource Guide profiles 20 real-world SDOH services that are promising for improving the quality and safety of medication use. Created by the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA), the guide focuses on SDOH screenings, referrals and interventions conducted by or involving pharmacists or pharmacies.

Embedded in the community as the most accessible healthcare providers, pharmacists are uniquely positioned to connect individuals to SDOH resources. The guide covers services that address at least one of seven SDOH barriers:
• Cost of Medications
• Cultural or Literacy Barriers
• Decent, Safe and Affordable Housing
• Food Security
• Screening for Unmet Needs
• Social Isolation
• Transportation

This PQA Quality Forum Webinar will feature PQA Executive Fellow, Alexis Caronis, as she provides an overview of the PQA Social Determinants of Health Resource Guide. She will be joined by panelists from CVS Health and Unite Us to learn more about their HealthTag initiative featured in the PQA Social Determinants of Health Resource Guide. They will provide details about the HealthTag initiative progress so far and next steps for the initiative. PQA Education Director, Amanda Ryan, will moderate the forum.
