Misclassification of American Indian and Alaska Native Patients

March 25, 2021

Please join us next week for the webinar, Misclassification of American Indian and Alaska Native Patients, from 10-11 a.m. Thursday, April 1 to learn about culturally-sensitive collection of race and ethnicity data and the impact of American Indian and Alaskan Native (AI/AN) misclassification. As hospitals and systems turn to patient demographic data to better detect and address health disparities, it’s critical to both ensure the integrity of the data and create a safe experience for patients to feel welcomed and comfortable sharing their culture. This webinar will feature experts from the Urban Indian Health Institute, Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board and the Washington State Department of Health, and will highlight a new resource promoting best practices for American Indian and Alaska Native data collection. Register online now.
