AACN is pleased to announce the two recipients of the Population Health/Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Case Studies: Rutgers University School of Nursing and Cizik School of Nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. These two awards of $5,000 will support faculty in the development of an educational unfolding case study focused on population health and SDOH concepts across the continuum of care. The case study will teach nursing students to: identify social factors that impact the health of their patients and communities; include community-based and other social services and programs in the care of their patients; and understand how the choices and engagement of nursing professionals can impact the health of patients and populations. Each unfolding case study will include a student assessment and a facilitator guide for instructors. The case study will be adapted by AACN for online completion by nursing students across the nation. These awards are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Academic Partnerships to Improve Health.
