Webinar Title: Session 3 – Inclusion Health and Understanding the Social Determinants of Health
Webinar Series: IFIC Ireland – Making Integrated Care Happen
Broadcast Date: 11/08/2020
Presenters: Áine Carroll, Sharon Lambert, Clíona Ní Cheallaigh
Inclusion health is a service, research, and policy agenda that aims to prevent and redress health and social inequities among the most vulnerable and excluded populations. Addressing social inequalities to ensure the best health outcomes for populations at risk at the earliest possible point of intervention can help to benefit lifelong health.
Dr Sharon Lambert will outline how childhood traumatic events can impact on health outcomes throughout life. The need to design services for appropriate delivery for individuals handling trauma and the impacts of stressful and traumatic circumstances will also be explored. Prof Clíona Ní Cheallaigh will speak about her work on improving access to healthcare for some of Ireland’s most vulnerable and socially excluded populations and how integration of services should address social inclusion at its core.
