Healthcare Disparities in Dermatologic Disorders
Scientific Questions Being Studied
To investigate prevalence, barriers to care among patients with dermatologic diseases that predominately impacts minority individuals.
- Population Health
- Social / Behavioral
- Other Purpose (The purpose of this workbench is to investigate the data available on a list of dermatologic diseases that predominately affects individuals from underrepresented backgrounds. )
We hope to collect survey data from participants with specific dermatologic diseases that predominately affect minority individuals (Black, Asian, LatinX, Multiracial, etc.) We plan to complete a preliminary search on the data available for the following dermatologic disorders: Acanthosis Nigricans, Acne Keloidalis Nuchae, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, Keloid Scars, Vitiligo, Dyschromia, Hyperpigmentation, Cutaneous Lupus, and Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. Once we identify which data has the appropriate sample size (n = 100), we will decide on a specific research question(s) to analyze. Multivariable regression will be used to analyze the relationship between race, ethnicity, and barriers to care. We will also complete multivariable regression analysis on survey study responses to determine possible relationships between demographic factors (age, gender, race/ethnicity) and quality of life, access to care, lifestyle, and comorbidities.
We hope to better understand if certain dermatologic diseases that predominately impact minorities are also associated with delay in diagnosis, higher cost, and structural barriers to care.
