We all hold unconscious beliefs or implicit biases about various social identities. As we collectively work to improve race relations, address injustices, and equip ourselves to move closer toward an anti-racist society, implicit bias trainings are tools that will empower us with the necessary skills, education, knowledge, and ability to contribute to understanding one another.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize race and social determinants as independent factors in health equity.
  • List some barriers to health equity, including how racism and social determinants affect health.
  • Discuss how implicit bias and stereotyping on the part of providers impacts racial disparities in health care, especially for children.
  • Recognize how education on issues of race, racism, and whiteness can help provide a critical race lens for providers.
  • Move towards health equity and improve our self-efficacy in treating our patients of color and children from marginalized communities.
