When Good Isn’t Good Enough: How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients ... Despite Our Good Intentions

The outcomes of unconscious bias can be seen across all industries. However, the need to mitigate the effects of unconscious in the healthcare industry is of particular importance. The evidence-based impacts of unconscious bias on safety, quality and mortality show that we are unintentionally putting our patients at risk. Cross-cultural competency is now a “must have” skill for healthcare providers as they strive to effectively provide patient-centered care for the ever-changing U.S. population, particularly as the country faces the lingering effects of COVID-19.

In this session, the participants will:

  • Understand what is meant by “unconscious (implicit) bias.”
  • Examine how unconscious bias impacts the delivery of care and patient experience.
  • Explore how unconscious bias impacts the spread, treatment, and health outcomes
  • Learn about practical actions that can be taken to reduce the effects of unconscious bias in healthcare operations.
