Description
Implicit bias is prevalent and can be a driver for health care disparities, and unequal health outcomes.

THIS EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY is designed to enable health care providers to embrace the fact that we all have biases and appreciate that unconscious biases are more prevalent than conscious ones. Awareness of the potential of one’s biases is the first step to address it. It is important for all of us to be honest about our biases and “flashlight” ourselves to become aware and eliminate implicit biases in our role as health care providers for everyone. Empathy plays a very important role in this process.This timely course will present insightful strategies to de-bias patient care, which include training, intergroup contact, and counter-stereotypical exemplars. The Implicit Association Test (Project Implicit) will be described.
