About this Event

Influence of Implicit Bias on Health Outcomes

Developing Respectful Care in Diverse Populations

Implicit bias in health care has deep and lasting consequences. Whether in maternal and child health, cancer care, or substance use disorder treatment, unconscious feelings and beliefs about individuals and groups, can affect treatment adherence, physician-patient relationships and long-term health outcomes across populations. Such bias is not limited to clinicians, but includes all staff members in health care settings, and must be addressed on all fronts in order to provide respectful and quality care to all.

Special guest speakers will provide an overview of implicit bias and dive into the causes and effects from both the patient and providers vantage point.

Ideas to be explored over a diverse health care landscape include:

1) What types of unintentional behaviors produce large health consequences?

2) Will diversity education for health care providers change health outcomes or are there specific tools that achieve better results?

3) Does stigma cause patients to seek non-medical help and guidance?

Formal research will explore patient-provider experience and dive into what changes need to be made to provide respectful care in diverse populations. Implicit bias cannot be underestimated and understanding both the patient and provider viewpoint is essential in health-care equality.
