This infographic explains the difference between “social determinants of health,” “social needs,” and “legal needs.” It also demonstrates how different team members—community health workers, case managers / social workers, and lawyers—each help address patients’ social needs in different ways and where medical-legal partnership fits within a health care organization’s larger response to social determinants of health (SDOH). This infographic can be a helpful messaging / educational tool.
