Equity Oriented Primary Healthcare Interventions for Marginalized Populations: Addressing Structural Inequities and Structural Violence (EQUIP)

Funding body: Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

Background: Equity-Oriented Primary Healthcare Interventions for Marginalized Populations: Addressing Structural Inequities and Structural Violence (EQUIP) seeks to contribute new knowledge about innovative primary healthcare interventions to mitigate the effects of structural inequities and structural violence for marginalized populations and the policy environments needed to support such programming. The focus of the research is the impact of an intervention for staff working at primary healthcare clinics working with marginalized populations. The intervention includes staff training on equity, cultural competence and trauma- and violence-informed care. The researchers will examine the effects of this intervention on changes in the way staff provide healthcare. This research is being conducted at two sites in BC (including Victoria) and two in Ontario.
