OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXAMINATION OF STRUCTURAL RACISM AND OTHER SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH TO ADVANCE HEALTH EQUITY THROUGH IMPLEMENTATION SCIENCE

Social determinants of health (SDoH) are the determinants that shape health inequalities. In implementation science there is an opportunity to build on this evidence by incorporating structural, community, and health system determinants in the development and testing of implementation strategies that may drive population health goals for achieving equitable implementation of evidence-based interventions. This discussion will highlight structural racism and other social determinants that may be reinforcing inequalities and opportunities for implementation scientists and practitioners to consider including these determinants of equity in our research and practice.
