2022 PCORI Annual Meeting Breakout Session

Panelists explore strategies to address social/structural determinants of health across the preconception, pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum phases of the pregnancy health continuum. Discussions center on exploring strategies to address various social and economic inequities, including systemic racism and inequitable access to quality health care and community resources, and their effects on both individual- and population-level health outcomes. Emphasis is placed on applying a patient-centered outcomes research/comparative effectiveness research lens to facilitate better stakeholder and community engagement, identification of research priorities, comparative effectiveness research of interventions, and implementation and dissemination of relevant research findings to all relevant communities and stakeholder groups.
