2023 Pasifika Grand Rounds | Structural Racism in Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (NHPI) Oncology Data
Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPI) have a high burden of health disparities. NHPI health data is often omitted due to its various regions, which adds to the health inequity this population experiences. NHPI data has historically been lumped up with other populations, and studies have shown that as a result of this data collection, statistics have been misrepresented, leading to health disparities and bias.
It is imperative to understand that attributing data for multiple races into a single category is not optimal. Policy changes are recommended to overcome the current barriers that limit the data reported on cancer in NHPI. There is a need to collect, analyze, and report disaggregated NHPI data. Understanding how NHPI differ from Asians, although ancestrally tied, can help solidify their identity as a group. There is a need to examine alternative methodologies in the setting of racial aggregated data. Research in this area, as well as dissemination of the findings, is integral in seeking to achieve ideal practice when it comes to being inclusive of NHPI patients, which will result in better patient outcomes.
Physicians and medical providers who serve Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (NH/PI) communities.
- Demonstrate health disparities experienced by Native Hawaiian Pacific Islanders (NHPI) in regards to cancer.
- Outline the health inequities experienced by NHPI regarding cancer data.
- Examine potential policy solutions and data recommendations aimed at reaching data equity for NHPI.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
