2024 Pasifika Grand Rounds | Implicit Bias in Hospitalized Medicine

February 20, 2024

Research shows that Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (NH/PI) patients experience racial discrimination in healthcare settings, and this may be in large part due to implicit bias, which has proven to be pervasive, yet people are often unaware of their implicit biases. This lack of awareness has to be addressed. 

The cognitive component of empathy and perspective-taking can reduce bias and inhibit unconscious stereotypes and prejudices. It is imperative to assess implicit bias in healthcare institutions in an effort to improve healthcare for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander patients. This lecture aims to provide tools to assess providers for implicit bias as well as strategies to combat implicit bias.

Target Audience

Physicians and medical providers who serve Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (NH/PI) communities.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate examples of implicit bias in healthcare.
  • Identify different assessment tools to search for implicit bias.
  • Discuss thee potential benefit in assessing implicit bias to improve healthcare for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander patients.
  • Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
