Webcast: The Impact of Environmental Conditions on Patient Health

A panel of key stakeholders in the pharmacy field discuss the nature of environmental conditions as a social determinant of health and the potential impact on patient health outcomes, as well as how to best educate patients and colleagues when approaching the subject in the pharmacy.

Environmental conditions can have a significant impact on the health of patients, such as increasing the risk of developing certain health conditions that result from the production of toxins or pollutants in the surrounding environment.
