Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Raj Mukherjee recaps an analysis of the impact of social determinants of health on treatment outcomes for patients having glioblastoma surgery. A review of 500 patients showed several socially based indexes were independent risk factors for poor outcomes. Being aware of social determinants of health can help clinicians connect patients and their families with resources to access treatment and improve survival and quality of life.
