Unconscious (implicit) bias refers to attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. A large body of compelling research has demonstrated the impact of unconscious bias on health and health disparities especially among individuals from diverse communities. This session will highlight the impact of provider and patient bias on health and healthcare. Panelists will provide proven strategies to address bias for both patients and providers.
