Pre-test is required prior to the conference: Implicit Bias Training Pre-test

Participants will:

        • Define implicit bias in the context of equitable access to healthcare, what it means to serve diverse populations, how to develop and implement diversity and inclusion initiatives, and describe cultural sensitivity in clinical practice.
        • Create and implement strategies to remedy the negative impact of implicit bias on patients by recognizing how bias impacts perception, judgment, and actions that result in inequitable decision making, failure to communicate effectively, and results in barriers to care.
        • Examine the historical biases and present consequences of implicit biases based on an individual’s characteristics and intersectional identities.
        • Review current research on implicit bias in healthcare disparities.
