Gain the knowledge and skills you need to promote equity in health care! Focused on what nurses can do to address health disparities, The Social and Structural Determinants of Health: Educating Nurses to Advance Health Equity provides a comprehensive look at how factors such as income, education, and race can lead to systemic disadvantage in health and well-being. It shows how nurses can partner with communities and organizations to understand the root causes of inequities in health, develop equity-minded skills, and take action to advance long-lasting progress. Written by Teri A. Murray, a noted nursing educator with rich expertise in health equity, this text makes it easy to learn and apply the principles that can lead to better health outcomes and healthier communities.
