Product Description

In healthcare, implicit bias can undermine employee well-being and patient care -- particularly if the bias leads to behaviors that perpetuate stereotypes or reflect prejudice or discrimination.

Healthcare workers who are unaware of their hidden biases can unintentionally make inappropriate or hurtful comments, treat certain co-workers or patients differently, or make administrative or patient care decisions without fully gathering and processing all the information. These scenarios sometimes result in unfair work practices, inadequate care, or inequitable access to care.

The good news is there are strategies to help healthcare workers recognize and overcome their biases. This Healthcare Version of Unintentional Still Hurts: Overcoming Unconscious Bias provides powerful examples of common workplace biases and how they can play out in the form of microaggressions. Learners are inspired to apply practical steps for identifying and challenging bias in themselves and others.

  • Course Content

    3 Modules (Understanding Bias, Recognizing Microaggressions, and What You Can Do to STEP Up) cover:
         • Implicit versus explicit bias, as well as examples of the most common types of workplace bias
         • How to manage microaggressions (if you’re the target or if you’re called out as the perpetrator), whether the incident involves a co-worker or a patient
         • How to be an ally for others if you witness disrespectful or demeaning conduct, or microaggressions in the workplace

    The Manager Version course includes additional instruction on the manager’s responsibilities should they:
        • recognize an employee is treating patients of a marginalized group differently or unfairly
        • suspect a policy or a practice may negatively impact access or patient care
        • believe a policy or practice puts employees of an underrepresented group at a disadvantage
    It also covers how a manager should respond if an employee or patient brings forward concerns about microaggressions or any other disrespectful conduct they’ve experienced.
