Applying an Equity Lens to Quality Improvement

While data is something the western medical model has been built upon, it hasn’t necessarily been equitable. This session will focus on how to apply an equity lens to the data that we collect as well as discuss what data we should be looking at, why and how do we collect this data in a way that fuels the equity as part of our quality improvement metrics for the communities we serve? NHCHC is delighted to have Naomi Windham, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, Clinical Quality Improvement Manager at Hennepin County, join us in discussing best data practices via an equity lens, the importance of transparency, and how to use data in ways to ensure it is not extractful, doesn’t ignore inequities hidden when we don’t include intersectionality, or weaponize against the communities we serve.

Speakers: Kevonya Elzia, Director of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, National Health Care for the Homeless Council; Lauryn Berner-Davis, Director of Implementation Research, National Health Care for the Homeless Council; Naomi Windham, Clinical Quality Improvement Manager, Family Nurse Practitioner, Hennepin County Health Care for the Homeless
