Implicit Bias: A Practical Guide for Healthcare Settings

In DC Health’s second module on implicit bias, the concept of implicit bias is overviewed and then expanded on through five scenarios. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from these realistic situations that take place in healthcare settings and review the reasons certain interactions display bias. These interactions may take place at any point during a patient’s care, from a scheduling phone call to the recording of symptoms, and these interactions can even take place amongst coworkers. This implicit bias module recreates healthcare encounters and provides learners with concrete examples so that they may lead the change in creating healthier work environments.
