Event description
This P2P workshop will assess the available scientific evidence on achieving health equity in the use of clinical preventive services in a health care setting, focusing on the three leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. This workshop will specifically address the following questions:

What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of providers to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
What is the effect of impediments and barriers on the part of minority, rural, and other disadvantaged patient groups to the adoption, promotion, and implementation of evidence-based preventive services that contribute to disparities in preventive services? Which of them are most common?
What is the effectiveness of different approaches and strategies between providers and patients that connect and integrate evidence-based preventive practices for reducing disparities in preventive services?
What is the effectiveness of health information technologies and digital enterprises to improve the adoption, implementation, and dissemination of evidence-based preventive services in settings that serve disparity populations?
What is the effectiveness of interventions that health care organizations and systems implement to serve disparity populations to reduce disparities in preventive services use?
