Implicit Bias in Medicine: Engaging in Crucial Conversations | July 2020
Released: July 2020
Time: 1 hour 14 minutes
Implicit bias involves associations outside our conscious awareness that lead to misleading, often-negative evaluations of a person or patient, on the basis of characteristics such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender. Medical professionals are not immune to implicit bias. Research in this area indicate rates of implicit bias within the medical community are equal to that of the general population. Discussing socio-medical topics like implicit bias is more important today than ever.

We will tackle this topic and how judgments can be based on unconscious stereotypes. Understanding and learning about implicit bias is subconscious, so it can be difficult to detect, but it is a crucial conversation in order to improve your patient care, professional interactions and overall satisfaction.
