Analyzing Causes of Disparities in Healthcare

 Jane E. Sisk and Nancy Sonnenfeld
  29th-May-2009
Description: The concept of disparity is that it lies along a causal pathway through which race/ethnicity affects health care or health and has roots in injustice. Identifying a disparity differs from analyzing its causes. Topics covered include: new patients whom physicians were not accepting, difficulty referring patients for specialty consultation, ambulatory visits by setting, ambulatory visits in different settings by poverty in patient zip code, emergency department waiting times, and more.
