- Identify ways that health workers and health systems participate in the criminalization of homelessness and addiction
- Name the barriers that prevent health workers and health systems from responding with greater compassion and creativity to unsheltered populations
- Reframe narratives related to homelessness and addiction in ways that remove blame from individuals experiencing homelessness and health workers and instead illuminate the contributions of social systems, policies and structures
- Utilize self-reflection, courage, and creativity to actively interrupt harmful narratives on homelessness and addiction in patient encounters, clinic and hospital team meetings, and in conversations with health system leaders.
