Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice: Starting with Why
The ability to provide patient-centered care is dependent not only on being compassionate and empathetic but also on the understanding of how a patient’s cultural differences and personal circumstances may affect their health.
Athletic trainers who value diversity are more equipped to advocate for diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice in addition to the health needs of their clients, patients, and larger communities. To drive enhancement in patient care across the athletic training profession, overt and intentional focus on diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice must be promoted in athletic training curricula. This webinar will serve as a resource to describe why the inclusion of specific diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice curricular content standards are a necessary and precise component of patient-centered care.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice: An Overview of Terminology
The nomenclature surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion continues to evolve, presenting the potential for communication barriers which challenge the provision of patient-centered care. The use of common language surrounding diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice can help athletic trainers communicate effectively and appropriately with patients, family members, health care professionals and others regarding these concepts. The expanding nature of the terms used to describe diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice prevents this module from being comprehensive in nature. It is the intent that this module will serve as a resource for which the concepts of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice are commonly defined in effort to improve understanding of the curricular content standards and their implementation in the athletic training curriculum.
