Cocktails and Conversations: Achieving Health Equity through Shared Decision Making

Friday, September 30 | 6 – 8pm | Johns Hopkins School of Nursing

Nurses are critical to solving our most pressing and persistent health challenges. The social reckoning and ongoing pandemic have highlighted opportunities for nurse leaders, clinicians, and researchers to drive structural changes for their unique contexts. Responding to evolving imperatives of the nursing profession, this event will explore the role of nurses in promoting equity and in dismantling practices that perpetuate racism and oppression. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and refreshments as they engage in a peer dialogue about ways to integrate principles of social justice into nursing practice and health policy in one of the following discussions:

  1. Breaking Down Structures that Perpetuate Racism and Affect Health Outcomes
    Attendees in this discussion will be able to:
  • Identify effective intervention strategies at each level of the socio-ecological model that address underlying racist structures
  • Determine mechanisms that explain how structural racism, perceived racism, and discrimination affect health outcomes across the life span, during life transitions, and across generational transition.
  1. Multi-Level Interventions to Address Social Determinants of Health across the Lifespan
    Attendees in this discussion will be able to:
  • Develop, rigorously study, and implement multi-level interventions that target the individual, family and social supports, community, population, and policy across the lifespan.
  • Identify the unique factors related to how different communities experience risk, access health care, and make decisions about their health and health care.
  • Identify the upstream factors at the population level such as environments (including climate change), behaviors, epigenetics, and social genomics that impact health outcomes
  1. Holistic Approaches to Advance Health Outcomes across the Lifespan
    Attendees in this discussion will be able to:
  • Promote holistic, person-centered health care research that accounts for the effects of an individual’s unique interaction of omics, lifestyle, environment, personal and family history, behaviors, and social determinants of health across the lifespan.
  • Promote and support research that accounts for the interdependence of patients, their larger social networks, and providers to understand the multilevel or mixed models that account for interactions that extend beyond patient- or caregiver-centric models.
  • Develop, rigorously test, and implement multilevel interventions targeted to the management of multiple conditions and syndemics
