Black Health Initiative Simulation Series - March 5, 2022

March 5, 2022

A Community and Provider Partnership

Research continues to indicate African-American mothers die at three to four times the rate of non-Hispanic white mothers, and infants born to African-American mothers die at twice the rate as their non-Hispanic, white counterparts, regardless of household education levels and socioeconomic status.  African-Americans in Colorado report higher preterm birth rates- 11.6 percent, as compared to 8.2 percent among white, non-Hispanic births, further complicated by higher rates of low birth-weight babies.

The outcomes and lessons learned in this work will focus on the impact of the patient-doctor relationship, promote patient/family advocacy, improve feelings of mistrust in medicine, and aid practical skill building for all parties. Overall, Children’s Hospital Colorado and its educational and clinical partners seek to build a relationship with its community to deliver culturally responsive care models.

Learning Objectives

These global objectives apply to each case scenario.

  • Participants will Identify gaps in knowledge of culturally responsive communication and care as they relate to African-American women and children. 
  • Participants will determine how to work collaboratively in the care setting to improve the patient experience for African-American women and children.
  • Participants will demonstrate how to use multiple care delivery modalities (e.g., telehealth, telemedicine, home visitation) to increase access and improve patient outcomes.
