Description

With publicly insured and uninsured patients making up about half of all outpatient visits in the US, and millions of previously uninsured patients continuing to access health care through Medicaid expansions, becoming an expert in caring for the complicated medical and social needs of vulnerable and underserved patients is crucial to every healthcare provider.


 


World-class experts and front-line practitioners from the Zuckerberg San Francisco General and the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations will present approaches to mitigate the challenges in caring for vulnerable populations and enhance the profound joy clinicians can experience when engaging with patients in greatest need. Topics to be covered will include updates in a broad range of diseases that disproportionately affect vulnerable patients, such as HIV, depression, PTSD, obesity, hepatitis and substance use. In addition, we discuss how clinicians can address social factors that complicate the management of medical illness, such as homelessness, school suspension, a history of trauma or of incarceration and food insecurity, etc. Each day we will feature a nationally renowned figure in the field of the care of vulnerable populations who will deliver pearls and impart wisdom with respect to how to stay engaged, connected, and inspired in this work.
