Health Care Providers’ Attitudes and Behaviors Around SDOH Screening and Referral Programs

A new issue brief published by the Social Intervention Research & Evaluation Network (SIREN) at the University of San Francisco California examines the research on health care providers’ knowledge, attitudes and beliefs, and behaviors (KABB) about socioeconomic risk screening and referral programs. Despite growing investment from the health care sector in social care initiatives, little information has been compiled about health care providers’ perceptions of both the need for and capacity to implement screening and referral programs. In an era of increasing documentation demands, time pressures, and provider burnout, understanding the provider impacts of these activities is foundational to program implementation and sustainability.
