Measuring What Matters in Social Determinants of Health: The Impact of Social Determinants of Health on HRQL for Persons with Chronic Illness

16-17 July 2024
Virtual Event

There is an established link between differences in social determinants of health (SDOH) and chronic disease disparities, and between chronic disease and health related quality of life (HRQL).

Far less is known about associations among SDOH, HRQL, chronic disease and health outcomes, including whether SDOH mediate the relationship between HRQL and chronic disease outcomes. This symposium proposes to highlight conceptual relationships among these concepts, stimulate research ideas including novel methodologies to analyze relationships between SDOH, and HRQL for people with chronic illness.
