Indicators for Social Determinants of Health Project
Addressing social determinants of health (SDOH) is a key priority listed in the strategic plan for the Diabetes Council. The Act on Data Workgroup sought to address DPCP competencies around understanding and becoming more competent in collecting data for SDOHs as they develop effective programs. The Act on Data workgroup identified 12 SDOH data indicators appropriate to DPCPs, and piloted collection and use of the indicators.
This Guidance Document is a summary of the pilot, the pros and cons of each indicator, and a tool to be used by DPCPs as they continue to make programs decisions which address SDOH.
