August 11, 2020 | Unconscious Bias Training
Unconscious bias is “the bias in judgment and/or behavior that results from subtle cognitive processes (e.g., implicit attitudes and implicit stereotypes) that often operate at a level below conscious awareness and without intentional control.
Unconscious bias may affect how providers and other clinicians interact with patients in terms of communication, treatment protocols or recommended treatment options, or options for pain management. Both perception and clinical decision making can be negatively impacted by implicit bias, with studies showing that implicit bias is significantly related to patient-provider interactions and treatment decisions.
Clinical Chairs, Division Chiefs, Research Chairs and all other medical staff across the enterprise.
- Identify situations that magnify stereotypes and biases.
- Practice evidence-based medicine as opposed to allowing unconscious biases to interfere with judgement.
- Increase opportunities for contact with individuals from different groups.
- Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
