About this Resource:

Structural competency is a term used in health education to describe the ability of health care providers to appreciate how symptoms, clinical problems, diseases and their own attitudes toward their patients are influenced by the social determinants of health. This guide is meant to provide a framework for incorporating structural competency into provider interactions with certified peer specialists and into their interactions with the populations that they serve.
