More Than Just Hair: Improving Hair Care Equity in Healthcare

Presenters: Surlina Asamoa, MSN, MHA, RN, CCM & Laura F. Watson, MSN, RN, CDFT

Description: Nurse educators, hospital leaders, clinical staff, and bedside nursing will all benefit from attending this webinar. When disparities in hair care hygiene are identified in healthcare settings, there are limited resources available to guide organizations and institutions in examining their current practices and identifying opportunities to provide more equitable care. This webinar will share best practices from organizations who have successfully implemented hair care equity programs and will provide necessary resources for health care organizations and institutions to initiate this work in their facilities.

This four part webinar series was developed with collaboration of the DEI task force.

Outcome: 85% of the participants of this webinar will incorporate a new strategy for a standardized approach to ensure equity in hair hygiene practices.
