Date Issued:15 Feb 2020
Abstract:The Medical-Legal Partnership for Children in Hawaii offers unique opportunities for health and law professional students and early career lawyers (fellows) and doctors (residents) to learn about the social determinants of health and health-harming legal needs together. Through their combined wealth of knowledge, which is often siloed and lost in professional jargon, they can reach new levels of understanding and practice skills to address whole person/whole client needs. Even short-term collaborative educational projects for students and early professionals can improve their confidence and ability to address the social/legal needs of patients.
Description:Abstract and Poster (PDF) were presented at the Health Professions Education Conference 2020 at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (University of Hawaii) on February 15, 2020.
