Arthritis At Home Episode 78 – ACE National Survey on Virtual Care Services for People Living with Arthritis: An in-depth look at health inequity findings
In this episode of Arthritis At Home, Maya Joshi and Cheryl Koehn discuss survey results specifically related to health inequities in virtual care from the “ACE National Survey on Virtual Care Services for People Living with Arthritis”.
Maya and Cheryl highlight some of the survey’s most important findings, including that Black, Indigenous and people of colour living with arthritis were:
• more likely to report difficulties using virtual care services;
• more likely to report no access to virtual healthcare services; and,
• were less likely to be very satisfied with their virtual care experiences in comparison to white respondents.
They also discuss the overall underrepresentation of racial minorities within the arthritis patient community at large, and why this is a very important issue to address.
