Activity Steps


The authors discuss the evidence of persistent heath disparity gaps that exist with a focus on Black patients with multiple myeloma. Care teams may inadvertently perpetuate health inequity among underserved populations through lack of awareness or experience in supporting patient-centered goals of care. The article reports on a large-scale, equity-focused implementation science initiative aimed at identifying and overcoming racial disparities and health inequity among patients with MM through quality improvement goals identified by each of the interprofessional cancer care teams. Findings support that using patient data as well as team-driven data to identify problems and inform strategies for change can assist professionals in mitigating health disparities, which can improve patient outcomes at the point of care.
