Center for Health and Social Care Integration, National Center for Complex Health & Social Needs
Social determinants of health are increasingly being recognized as important for health care to pay attention to. These conditions in which we live and age can be protective and associated with positive outcomes (e.g., having stable housing or supportive social connections), or they can be detrimental to one’s health and wellbeing. In the latter case, social determinants are known as health-related social risk factors, and when experienced at the individual level, as social needs.
