Scientific Questions: What are the barriers to care faced by patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases and adults in general? Which barriers to care may be contributing to the racial and ethnic disparities in health care access and utilization for patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases and adults in general? Importance: Ultimately, by identifying barriers that may be contributing to the disparities in care utilization for patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases and adults in general, we can lay the groundwork for future research and community efforts to address these barriers and related issues to help close the racial and ethnic gaps in care and to improve patient outcomes.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Population Health

Scientific Approaches

Our research will primarily focus on responses to the Health Care Access and Utilization survey by patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases (such as psoriasis, acne, atopic dermatitis, hidradenitis suppurativa, etc.) and adults in general. Multivariable logistic regression will be used to calculate adjusted odds ratios to describe the relationship between race and ethnicity and the various barriers to care.

Anticipated Findings

Our hypothesis is that there will be both cost and non-cost related barriers experienced by patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases and adults in general, suggesting those barriers as potential contributing factors to the disparities in care utilization. Current knowledge in the field has identified that disparities in care and outcomes exist for racial and ethnic minority patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases and adults in general, and we are building on that knowledge by identifying barriers to care that may be underlying and contributing to those disparities.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Population Health

Scientific Approaches

Our research will primarily focus on responses to the Health Care Access and Utilization survey by patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases (such as psoriasis, acne, atopic dermatitis, hidradenitis suppurativa, etc.). Rates of barriers experienced by patients of different races will be compared using chi-square tests. Controlling for age and biological sex, logistic regression will be used to calculate adjusted odds ratios to describe the relationship between race and the various barriers to care.

Anticipated Findings

Our hypothesis is that there will be both patient-related and provider-related barriers to care experienced by patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases, suggesting those barriers as potential contributing factors to the disparities in care utilization. Current knowledge in the field has identified that disparities in care exist for patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases, and we are building on that knowledge by identifying barriers to care that may be underlying and contributing to those disparities.
