Description

Racial and ethnic minority youth have less access to health care and experience health disparities that are  linked  to  social  determinants  that impact their  health  and  well-being. This book is a practical reference for clinicians caring for racially and ethnically diverse adolescents seeking to effectively identify and address the  social  structures and  factors  that influence their health and well-being to promote health equity. It provides  an  overview  of  key health  equity, population health and cultural competency principles and highlights clinical,  teaching, and research  skills critical to promoting health equity. Clinically  oriented  chapters provide guidance  on  strength-based approaches  and  strategies  that   clinicians  can  integrate  in  their  encounters  with  diverse  youth  and feature  clinical  vignettes,  clinical  pearls  and  reflection  questions  to  promote  the  application  of  concepts  to  practice.  Promoting Health Equity Among Racially and Ethnically Diverse Adolescents is a valuable resource for clinicians across all areas of medicine.
