Mitigating Implicit Bias Training

Mitigating Implicit Bias Training

UAFP, with a grant from the AAFP Center for Diversity and Health Equity, is offering this course for family medicine physicians and other primary care providers seeking to better understand the impact of unconscious bias and how to reduce negative effects of implicit/unconscious bias on patients.

“Implicit bias has been demonstrated as pervasive among health care professionals and having harmful effects on patient health. However, formal medical education and training is often void of curriculum that provides a framework for identifying and reducing implicit biases in clinical practice. Faculty that seek to incorporate the topic often face barriers, such as a limited number of subject matter experts that can provide instruction, lack of opportunities where participants can observe and demonstrate mitigation strategies in practice, and lack of opportunities to engage with patients who can share experiences of encountering implicit bias in clinical settings.”
~ AAFP Center for Diversity and Health Equity/The EveryONE Project
