Program Description

The presence of bias among healthcare professionals and the effect on quality of care is a highly documented cause for concern. The good news is the more we know about bias, the better equipped we are to combat its ill effects in health care. This webinar will provide an in-depth understanding of how bias can affect patient care and contribute to health disparities. Ms. Sims will identify common biases that influence decision-making and offer practical strategies clinicians can implement to improve patient care and mitigate harm in their own environment.
