This activity was developed for physicians including Eisenhower medical staff along with nurses and ancillary staff.
At the end of this presentation, participants should be better able to:
- Define implicit bias, explicit bias, health disparity, healthcare disparity, intersectionality, and explain how these terms relate to the delivery of healthcare.
- Take steps to identify the role implicit bias may play in their own clinical practice, and use various techniques to improve care to all patients, regardless of their background
- Explain how explicit bias may affect the care of patients from different cultures and who use different languages.
