Reducing Implicit Verbal and Nonverbal Bias

toward Hispanic Patients

Speaker: Dr. Jeff Stone 

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

12:00-1:30PM

Mountain Oyster Club

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the topic of implicit bias in patient care.  In order to treat all patients fairly and effectively, it is important to understand how implicit biases occur, and what you can do to reduce them. In this workshop, we will first review the causes and consequences of implicit bias in patient care, experience first-hand what implicit bias feels like, and then discuss strategies you can use to reduce implicit bias when interacting with your patients.

Who should attend?

Psychologists, school psychologists, behavioral health practitioners, health care professionals, and any other interested parties. 


This introductory level presentation will help participants

1.     Define and distinguish between the social cognitive components of intergroup bias:  Prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination.  Provide examples of each in patient care. 
2.     Describe the difference between explicit and implicit intergroup bias in patient care.
3.     Describe how implicit bias affects diagnosis/treatment decisions and interactions with patients.
4.     Describe the following strategies for reducing implicit bias: activating egalitarian goals; searching for common identity and counter-stereotypic information; perspective taking; using implementation intentions to plan.

 

About the Speaker

Jeff Stone, Ph.D., is a Professor of Psychology in the School of Mind, Brain & Behavior, and Professor of Psychiatry in the College of Medicine at the University of Arizona. Dr. Stone has devoted most of his career in experimental social psychology to investigating prejudice and stereotyping, stereotype threat processes, the reduction of intergroup bias, and mechanisms of health attitude and behavior change. Dr. Stone’s NIH funded research focuses on the intergroup bias processes that contribute directly to ethnic and racial disparities in health. His projects examine whether implicit stereotyping of Hispanic patients by healthcare professionals affects medical decisions and interactions, and whether having healthcare professionals complete training in the psychology of implicit bias can reduce implicit stereotyping of Hispanic patients.
