Bringing Awareness to Implicit Bias

Learning Objectives
1. Define implicit bias
2. Identify how implicit biases may impact health care workplace decision-making and interactions
3. Describe ways to mitigate the negative effects of implicit bias in your practice
1 Credit CME

Everyone holds implicit biases. This interactive module defines implicit bias, encourages you to identify and acknowledge your own hidden biases, and shares strategies to help mitigate the unintended consequences of implicit bias. The more we are aware of our biases, the more we can change the way they impact our decision making and our interactions with patients and colleagues. The first step is awareness, which is the focus of this module. Once we examine and unpack our own implicit biases, we can begin to dismantle the larger systemic structures that hold inequality in place.
