Equity-oriented health care (EOHC) is about directing resources to those with the greatest needs. It doesn’t mean treating everyone equally, because everyone doesn’t need the same thing.
EQUIP Health Care is a group of research intervention studies working with health care organizations – like primary health care clinics and emergency departments – to enhance their capacity to provide equity-oriented health care, particularly for those experiencing marginalization. We are also undertaking foundational work exploring the intersections between inequity and key issues such as chronic pain. For more information, visit https://equiphealthcare.ca
