The medical-legal partnership team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center developed a video curriculum that helps teach residents to understand, screen and treat social determinants of health. It offers training modules on particular areas of patient need including housing, education, domestic violence and public benefits, and uses stories and role playing to demonstrate the impact of detection and appropriate services. The full curriculum has been added to the Association of American Colleges’ (AAMC) MedEDPortal, and is available for free download from their website once you have created a free user account.
