To do so, you must focus on the social and physical environments that promote health. These environmental determinants include place of birth, neighborhoods, life, experiences, work environments, recreational activities, and worship practices. These determinants affect health, daily functions, and quality-of-life risks and outcomes. Resources that can affect access to quality healthcare include safe and affordable housing, access to education and emerging technologies, public safety, the availability of healthy foods, and local health and emergency services.
The purpose of this task is to reflect on how such outside factors affect Carolyn’s access to quality healthcare.
