Care Equity Project
Almost one in six Americans is living in poverty.
About the Program
The Care Equity Project is a collaborative effort to assist community health care providers and Kaiser Permanente staff and physicians in improving health equities for patients living with limited financial resources. Incorporated into this project are a variety of experiential activities and educational sessions that raise awareness, disseminate knowledge and develop skills to deepen an understanding of people who experience financial challenges:
- Loose Change: A theatrical presentation sharing real-life stories of people living with limited financial resources and the challenges they face in health care settings. The play raises awareness and sets the stage for discussion and educational workshops.
- Care Equity Workshops: A series of educational workshops that provide experiential activities to increase knowledge, address bias, develop skills and promote equitable and empathetic health care.
Target audience: Adults
Duration: Customizable and can vary from 1-6 hours
All programs are free to nonprofit organizations and community groups along Colorado’s Front Range. Contact us for more information. NOTE: The Care Equity Project is available for virtual bookings at this time! Due to the prevalence of COVID-19, there are no live offerings at this time.
Reach, Partnerships and Impact
The Care Equity Project (CEP) was born out of a desire to assist caregivers in delivering empathetic care and to enrich the quality and hospitality of health care delivery for everyone. The Access to Care Team and Kaiser Permanente Case Managers partnered together to develop the Care Equity Project. Since its inception, CEP has worked with various higher education institutions and health organizations and institutions including: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) School of Nursing, Clinica Family Health Services, Colorado Community Health Network, Peak Vista, and The Institute of Health.
