Changing Patient Base

NOTE: You will only receive a certificate of completion if you do the tutorial online.

This tutorial explains why it is important to recognize changes in patient demographics. It shows how the population in the United States is growing, aging, moving to more urban areas, and becoming more racially/ethnically diverse. Some of the resulting health disparities are then discussed, including clinical conditions, access to care, health care quality, levels and types of care, and care settings. Breastfeeding rates are then looked at for different groups based on socio-demographic characteristics, such as race/ethnicity, income, and maternal age.
