Health inequities and disparities are a searing symptom of institutional and historical racism. While there are many contributors to health inequities, the role of clinicians cannot be underestimated. This interactive and experiential presentation invites participants to explore biases and stereotypes and the ways they can unfold in clinical care through micro-aggressions, suboptimal communication, and problematic decision-making. Participants will leave with tangible tools for diminishing the impacts of bias in care provision and perhaps recommit to tangible advocacy for health justice.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Be able to articulate the relationship between prejudice, stereotypes, oppression and health equity.
  2. Be able to take advantage of cognitive tools to manage implicit bias.
  3. Enhance communication skills to raise team accountability around culturally responsive health care delivery.
