This webinar is part of the Disparities Series 2020: Person-Centered Care as a Solution to Bias. Additional sessions are listed below.
Everyone wants to believe that healthcare is an equalizer, where the critical issue is care and compassion. The reality is that bias, both explicit and implicit, creates a far too often negative care encounter. The ability to deliver care in a non-biased manner means we must acknowledge that bias exists, understand how it is sustained and define ways to create unbiased experiences for individuals.
People want care that aligns with their personhood and preferences. Each session in this series builds upon the previous. However, it is not necessary to attend each session to have a positive learning experience. Each session will include tools for improving your patient experience and staff satisfaction in your organization as they relate to the reduction of bias.
