Implicit Bias and its Impact on Behavior

Thursday, November 17, 2016 - Monday, December 31, 2018, 12:00 AM, Online, Orlando, FL


This module refers to the implicit (or unconscious) bias to favoritism or aversion toward a particular group driven by attitudes and stereotypes that the person is neither aware of nor able to exhibit conscious control over.  Implicit bias is directly tied and well-documented to differential treatment of patients.  This session introduces participants to the concept of implicit bias and the data supporting its role in healthcare outcomes, to data on best practices, and to assist medical educators in identifying ways to incorporate this concept into their clinical training.


At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
  1. Explain implicit bias, including how it is measured using the Implicit Association Test (IAT).
  2. Describe how implicit bias has been shown to influence behavior, especially with respect to healthcare.
  3. Discuss strategies for mitigating implicit bias.
