Uncover how implicit bias is affecting the way you practice.

Implicit biases are the unconscious stereotypes and attitudes that we develop toward certain groups of people. Research suggests that implicit biases contribute to health disparities by affecting patient relationships and care decisions. The following resources will allow participants to examine implicit bias in healthcare settings, understand how it contributes to health disparities, and learn practical strategies for mitigating the effects. The resources also provide an introduction on how to be an ally and leader in diversity, equity, inclusion, and health equity.
